A effective set for embroidered blocks. Nice gradation of colors. Perfects circles appliqued in the border!
In addition to the show there are several exhibits. Within the show is the Pilgrim and Roy Challenge that I mentioned in my last post. This quilt by Diane Gudinsky (spelling?) was part of this year's exhibit.
There was also an exhibit from a guild showing western themed quilts. They were really nice. Loved this one with the vintage cowgirl photos.
If you are in Paducah you must check out the National Quilt Museum. In addition to their standing collection there was an exhibit on baskets that showed both antique quilts and newly made ones inspired by the antiques. I was inspired!
At the rotary club there was and exhibit of antique quilts from the Christ collection. A beautiful collection of Pennsylvania quilts. The Christ's will also be at the show this summer in Hershey...I am hoping to go to the show with Tonya...keeping fingers crossed! I bought a couple of the Christ's (pronounced with a soft i) past catalogs for the "library/collection." At the back of the rotary hall there was also some of the Hoffman Challenge Wallhangings.
These are all quilts in addition to the quilts in the show...and this doesn't even include all the quilts in the vendor booths. To say there is a lot to take in is an understatement!
