    Semi-Finalist Paducah AQS Spring Show

    I'm very happy to have had my miniature quilt accepted for the Paducah AQS Spring Show which will be held in Paducah, KY April 24-27th. AQS provided this picture for all semi finalists to show on line.

    I'm also attaching a picture of my little quilt which measures 17.5x19.5" This took me almost a year to complete. What was I thinking to try to make this in miniature. I'm not sure which was the most difficult...the piecing, the embroidery, or the machine quilting. Hope you all can make it to the show. Thanks for looking.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    You always do such great work. I feel like the blind, lame and crazy trapesing behind a long line of real quilters. I hope you do very well at the show.

    Congratulations on having your quilt accepted into the Paducah show! It is an impressive little quilt, that's for sure. Easy to believe that this would take a long time to complete.
