Breaking Traditions Sneak Peek

Every other Monday between today and August 1, one of the art quilts that has been sent in for Breaking Traditions 2008 will be featured here. Once I receive your block, your name is put into a hat and randomly drawn to determine who will be shown on the blog. Everyone featured on the blog will have a chance to win a very special prize!

Today's art quilt is from Jackie Lams of Plymouth, Michigan:

We're Not Just Women, We are Moms
Jackie Lams

Artist statement: Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader I have been a part of my MOPS group since 2004. They have touched my life, given me everlasting friendships, unconditional love and support and made me a better person.

Breaking Traditions is an open call art quilt exhibit that debuts at The American Sewing Expo in Novi, Michigan in September. This year, the exhibit will travel to other venues during 2009. The theme this year, With One Voice, pays tribute to all the good that people do. We are also proud to team up with Virgina Spiegel's Fiberart for a Cause project to help raise money for the American Cancer Society! You can read all the details for participating in this year's exhibit here.

Get With One Voice Gear!

Love the With One Voice theme? Get a t-shirt! With One Voice has a section in Fiberart for a Cause's Cafe Press shop where all the profits are donated to the American Cancer Society! Other items with the With One Voice logo include a mouse pad and a mug. Its another great way to help raise money for the American Cancer Society!

Stay tuned for more Sneak Peeks, your art quilt could be next!
