I seek high-quality images of quilts celebrating the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States, to be published in a book, The Journey of Hope in America: Art Quilts Inspired by President Barack Obama, to be released in August 2009. Please share this call with other quilters.

The book will be a large, full-color, 200 page hardback. Deadline for submissions is June 15th, 2009. Artist will be notified of acceptance by the end of June, 2009.
