Conservative/McCain quilts?

This was on a quilt list today.
You guys have been a great help sending images and information about your quilts and others for this political (Get Out and Vote) exhibit for Houston this fall I want to send a great big Thank You!

We seem to have a lot of quilts being made in support of democratic candidates, at least those are the quilts being sent for consideration in response to our request. We really need to be fair, so I'm asking if anyone has a McCain quilt or a republican quilt they would like to share? Please contact me directly at spexhibits@quilts.com and not through the list. Send a photo, size, and brief statement/explanation regarding the quilt prior to the August 15, 2008 deadline.

I think it's going to be a really unbalanced exhibit, since there's about three U.S. quilters who aren't self-styled "progressives", and they don't do political work.

But if any of you know anyone who loves McCain or the GOP enough to make a quilt, please tell them of this opportunity to display it.

(It'll be interesting to see this exhibit when it comes to Chicago 3 months after the inauguration...)
