Paducah, Day 3, Part 1

Well, we have reached the third and final day at the Paducah quit show. Either there were a lot more quilts to see on this day or Kathy took more pictures than she did on the previous two days. In fact, that there are too many to put into this post. So, unfortunately, I will have to drag this show out for one more week. I will post half of the pictures today and the rest next Tuesday. Here goes.

I am the type of person that likes order and organization. This appeals to me because I like the3 structure.

I really like how the point of one star strikes the center of the stars surrounding it.

I think the appliqued border makes this quilt.

This I find interesting. Looks almost metallic.

These guys look like they are enjoying themselves.

This rose really stands out.

Pictorial quilts fascinate me.

How about a stained glass window?

These flowers are ready for their close up.

I bet these two are wondering why all of those people are staring at them.

The work that went into making this one!

I like the colors in this one and just look at the quilting.

This one is bright and catches the eye.

They just look so calming.

Something to brighten up the day.

Well, that does it for today. The final set of pictures will be posted next week. I promise.

    Once, again, tough decision about a favorite. Why do I feel I must choose, anyway? Each has its own beauty, but…I love the flowered border that you also appreciated. The scene that you called metallic is phenomenal. I would like to see it up close. How did they achieve the stained glass effect? So cool. I will be sad to say goodbye to the quilt show. (I bet Kathy felt the same.)

  2. I know from having seen some stained glass quilts up close come quilters use black bias strips around the pieces to achieve the leaded look. Kathy was sad to leave the show, but was glad that this was the second time she was able to attend this particular show.

  3. I vote for the penguins. It seemed so natural, peaceful, and yet joyful although the rose was gorgeous as well! Such great posts. Thanks to you and Kathy for this great sharing!

  4. These quilts are stunning. Again, I enjoy your commentary and concur w/ your analysis of each quilt. I’m looking forward to next week’s post and more quilt art. We need this beauty in our world of so much ugly. Blessings and peace to you.

  5. WOW! I had no idea that people craft such beauty out of fabric.
    SImply stunning. Thanks for sharing. And i humbly admit, I have trouble sewing the button back on my shirt when it comes off.

  6. Wow! It would be so challenging to judge these quilts! The artistry is amazing!

  7. They are all so beautiful. I can imagine the love and passion of the people who made them.
