Animals We Love Contest Gallery

Please scroll down this page to see the 2015 "Animals We Love" Contest Quilts!

All of the "Animals We Love" contest quilts were donated by their makers and before being auctioned, the quilts went on a national exhibition tour that began at the Utah headquarters of Handi Quilter, Inc, and included stops at American Quilter's Society, Original Sewing & Quilt Expo shows and the International Quilt Festival. The quilts were sold via an online auction in November 2015 and raised $10,878, providing crucial funds to support the operation of projects like Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories and Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! Thank you to all of the creative and generous artists who donated their work to support the Alliance! And thank you to our bidders, our buyers and our sponsors for helping make this year's contest, exhibition and auction a great success!
