AQS Fall Paducah 2018

I seem to be having a lucky run at the moment because this week I got an email saying that I had won a prize in the American Quilters Fall Paducah Show.

I couldn't believe it; I haven't won a prize in the AQS shows for years.

Yesterday I got the good news that my quilt The Bleaching had won 3rd place in the Pictorial Wall category. What an honour and a thrill.

The quilt is about how Coral Reefs are suffering with higher temperatures which is causing the coral to bleach or lose colour and turn white, after a while it dies. I wanted a happy ending to the story though, so in the last section it is the reef regenerating.

Here are some detail photos.

I really enjoyed making this quilt and I'm happy that many others seem to like it as well.

Bye for now,

Pity it wasn't in Paducah in April, then I would have been able to see it. Are you going to see it?

Thanks Jude, I had already planned a week away this week, never guessing I would actually win a prize. Just shows that you never know!
