Loose Threads: Paducah Quilt Show Quilts

Paducah Quilt Show Quilts

Here are some of my favorite quilts from the Paducah quilt show.  I love feathered stars and kept coming back to look at this one.


I love this one because it uses more traditional fabrics.  I think anything with stars is great.


Another nice pieced quilt with traditional fabrics.



This show stopper is by Kevin the Quilter.  This looks like colorful QR Code, and I love it.  Kevin had quite a crowd of people huddled around his quilt.  I had to wait quite awhile for them to clear out so I could take this photo.


This quilt is by Theresa of Fabric Therapy blog.  I know she has worked long and hard on the applique' and hand quilting of this beautiful quilt.  


This quilt is by Linda Hrcka and Lisa Bongean.  Linda blogs at The Quilted Pineapple, and her machine quilting is beyond beautiful.  And, you can find Lisa at Primitive Gatherings.  



Aunt Millie's Garden.  

Love the 30s and the quilt design.



Beautiful applique'.


I always love to see a Phebe quilt.



I have no idea how this one was done, but it looks so realistic.

More beautiful applique.  




I'm trying something.  I set up an account on Shutterfly.  The title of my page is Loose Threads Photos.     If the link doesn't work it is https://loosethreadsphotos.shutterfly.com/

I did ask about taking photos at each stop before taking any of these.  I explained that I like to put them on my blog, and they said that it was fine.  There are photos from the Rotary Club Exhibit which were mostly the antique hexagon quilts, There are some photos there from the Hoffman Challenge, too.  There are also photos of more of the quilts from the quilt show, wall hangings upstairs as well as the Wicked Cherrywood Challenge.  There are also photos of my Shipshewana Retreat.  If you look at the bottom right of each folder of photos, you can click on view album,  That way you can see all of the photos and not just the ones that are displayed on the screen.  There is also a slideshow button so you can just sit back and watch.  We stopped at three different churches for our meals.  Some of the quilts and photos are from those stops.   Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Some gorgeous applique quilts. I recognized Theresa's musical instruments right away. There is a brown background quilt with applique flowers on it showing partially in one of the photos. Looks interesting. I like the darker background.
