Fall Paducah 2017

What an honor it was to be an instructor at the first ever AQS Fall Paducah 2017 show!!

The day before classes started we decided to do a little site-seeing and a trip to Hancock’s!!  Let’s just say I did some retail therapy!!!

 

The show was wonderful as were my students!!  I just love sharing what I know about quilting, and was thrilled that so many students wanted to learn!!

I had three customer quilts that were juried into the Paducah show:

Congratulations to Ellen as one of her quilts (Summer of ’59), won a Third Place Ribbon in the Whimsical Quilt category:

My customer, Chris, had her beautiful Tula Pink Butterfly quilt hanging at the show.  It looked beautiful hanging there.  And while this quilt didn’t win any ribbons, it did actually make it onto the news!!

Here’s the link for the news segment!!  http://www.wpsdlocal6.com/2017/09/15/fall-quilt-show-brings-new-people-paducah/

We did see a few fun sites on our drive home.

Have you ever seen a pumpkin this large?

We saw this castle along the way in Kentucky and I just had to pull the car over and take a picture of this!!  Pretty cool!!!

All in all this was an amazing experience!!

 

Happy Quilting!!

The Last of A New Age!!

Well, I recently finished my fourth and final New Age Block of the Month Customer quilt.  Phew!!!!  They all turned out wonderfully, and ended up being all so different from each other.  I thought you might like to see them all together and see how different they are.  Pattern is by Nancy Rink.

This latest one belongs to Janet and she designed and added borders to make it larger!!  It turned out wonderful!!!

This next one belongs to Peggy.

Then this one belongs to Virginia.  

The last one belongs to Eileen and she wanted to go with a Southwest look.

 

Here they are all together……

It just goes to show you how the same quilt pattern can turn out such different and beautiful quilts!!!  It makes me think of people…..and how we are all the same….yet different….and that’s the beauty of the human race!!!!

Happy Quilting!!!
