Contest Entry

This is an art quilt in a patriotic themed crazy quilt form. It was made by thirteen members of our local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter. It is entered into the fiber arts part of the yearly American Heritage contest for DAR members. There were quite a few rules to follow and I guess we didn't do too bad. There was some ripping and gnashing of teeth when some didn't adhere to the rules that really mattered. First, the quilt is entered into the state contest and winners will be chosen. If our quilt is chosen, then it goes to DC for entry into the national/international contest. Wish us luck!

It's been so long since I've posted photos that I had to learn all over.

Wow! My grandmother was a DAR member and I have always thought of joining myself. You may have just talked me into it! Will they be displayed at the DAR building in DC? If so I will go visit.

When my sister won 2nd place in national a couple of years ago, the winners were displayed somewhere in the building during DARs Continental Congress in June. There are literally thousands on entries in all categories each year.

I thoroughly enjoy being a member of DAR. We do so many interesting things. Of course, our first objective is to honor our patriots and our freedoms. We also honor our service men and women who keep our country free. And it's not just a group of old ladies. We have many younger members who have brought a freshness to the group.

That is why I am thinking of joining. When I was a teenager it was all old ladies in gloves and high society sniffiness. Now it is far more interesting I understand.

Love your new word, VaNella, "sniffiness".  It tickles my fancy.

Beautiful and best of look.   I think that is what causes a lot of people to not join groups like this, as they did have the reputation of "white gloves", Hats, and Vanella's "sniffines"!
