AQS Show Winning Quilts -- Just Posted

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
    This took Best Wall Award (Moda).  This one has great detail, too...I would not have imagined using a closeup like this for such an effective quilt. But she did...and it is.
     Double wow.
