Two of Quilt Index Coordinator Beth Donaldson's quilts have sparked entries in this year's Quilt Alliance Inspired By Contest. Chosen out of 55,000 quilts available for viewing on the Quilt Index, this is quite an honor. We are so happy to see one of our own recognized in this way!
The first is a quilt made by Donaldson in 2011, entitled Cruz's Quilt. Julie Dugas of Asheville, North Carolina created her rendering using a modified pattern and a similar palette. This version is entitled, Mod.

The second quilt entry we are highlighting is based on Donaldson's Clams Incognito from 1996. Deb Hathaway Hunter of Ocean, New Jersey, created a more literal interpretation of this pattern with her quilt, Raw Clams at the Shore.
