AQS Syracuse Prizewinners

Want to see who won in the quilt competition at AQS' latest show -- Syracuse, New York?

Go here for more, including photos.  And if you're saying to yourself, "Gee, I saw at least some of these at the Paducah show earlier this year"...
     you're right.

Judges make jokes about Really Good Quilts making the circuit -- because that's what their owners/makers do. The best quilts often take years to stitch. So wouldn't it make sense to enter them in more than one competition, so they can take advantage of different judges and differing viewpoints?
    It makes sense...but as a judge, you keep hoping to see something new. However, it's the best piece that wins the competition -- and in different shows, that means different pieces entered.

In this case, Best of Show was quilt #116, "Ewe Are My Sunshine," by Janet Stone of Overland Park, KS.
      Nice job, Janet.
