My Favorite Paducah Quilts

This post has lots of photos, but there were so many beautiful quilts that it was hard to choose favorites.  Here are a few of those that really caught my eye.  I love the big circular applique designs.

This Grandmother's Flower Garden was just striking. 

This is the Marsha Radtke applique' quilt that has been a favorite of mine.

Beautiful Red and Green Revisited.

The flowers in this quilt are made from yo-yos.
Another beautiful applique' quilt.

I loved all the border work on the next two.

The blocks in this one were pretty simple, but the placement of color made this quilt one that I wanted to study further.
It looked just like you could walk up to this quilt and take the red beads right off of the table.
Here are three of the miniatures.  The photos were taken through glass so aren't too clear.

If you go to the AQS site, you can see photos of all of the winning quilts. 

The rest of my photos from the quilt show are up on my webshots page at:

 I hope you are all taking a few stitches today.  Thanks for visiting.

Beautiful collection - thanks for showing us:) Love the 'grandmothers flower garden' and the 'red and green revisited' - beautiful applique there! What a shame some of the quilts are so overquilted...

Oh my goodness! These are so beautiful. Don't you love all that gorgeous appliqué? I wish I could have been there, too. I think they all deserve a ribbon. Love the yoyo flowers.
