The Best of the Best!

Here are the rest of my Paducah photos!  The quilt above was made by Grand Junction's own Jackie Aguilar!  It's called Fading Memories.  It's a beautifully machine appliquéd embroidered vintage linen that she exquisitely machine quilted! It was fun to see a beautiful quilt made by someone I know in such a big show!  Congratulations Jackie!

One thing about the Paducah show I found a tiny bit frustrating is that we couldn't look at the quilts straight on because of the way they hang the quilts and barriers. I do realize it takes a LOT of work to hang a quilt show, so I'm sure they do the best they can.

The quilt above is: Nearly A 9 Patch by Laura Welklin, Indiana
Below:  Kaleidoscope Trees by Judith Phelps, Washington

By Aline Bugarin and Natasha Bugarin, Brazil

Below:  Pop-Up Posies
by Erin Russek and Karen McTavish, Colorado

These next two quilts were quilts displayed that have appeared in books.  This quilt is from Divide and Design, which I own.  I love the idea of this, dividing up big spaces and making a secondary design with your machine quilting.  Just need to give it a try!! The quilt below may be from the same book but I'm not positive.

These two quilts were part of the Korean Quilts Now exhibit which was hung in the Paducah School of Art & Design.

This picture and the one below show an exhibit of quilts from Brazil!  Very artistic!

 That's all I have from Spring Paducah 2018 folks!  Are you still cleaning your studio?  If so, head over to Debby Brown Quilts to see how she did!
The blog hop ends tomorrow!
