The Paducah version of the American Quilters Society show is starting up...and the winners have been announced.
Here's BEST OF SHOW -- from a familiar name: Marilyn Badger from St. George, UT.
Her quilt: Arandano
Look at the detail on this piece -- wow.
(Notice that cool 'inset' look between borders? Using slightly-darker fabrics on the outside edge of the inside border -- i.e., the spikes -- helps. Nice.)
Another beauty -- It's the Cowboy Way by Karlyn Bue Lohrenz of Billings, MT

The show winners are listed here, along with other photos. Congratulations!
