Some 2017 Paducah Quilts

If you ever get a chance to visit The Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, I highly recommend it.  You can see all the Quilts in a little over an hour. Unfortunately, no pictures allowed, but the Quilts are amazing works of art and SO inspirational!!!!!IMG_0807IMG_0808IMG_0809IMG_0810IMG_0811IMG_0812IMG_0815IMG_0816IMG_0831IMG_0837IMG_0838IMG_0842IMG_0843IMG_0844IMG_0846IMG_0847IMG_0849IMG_0850IMG_0851IMG_0852IMG_0854IMG_0856IMG_0858IMG_0859IMG_0861

We could not use The township hall today so Judy offered The Fuller’s North Branch Outing Club.  We had a blast.  Something about “the lodge” brought out the creativity in everyone.  THANKS, JUDY!!!!

Judy shared her project and knowledge from the class she took with Laura Heine at The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island this past week.  Amazing stuff!!!!

IMG_0908IMG_0909

Then Judy showed us her AMAZING beaded project she worked on over the winter.  Totally blew us all away.  The pictures definitely DO NOT do it justice!!!!!

WOW, Lillian finished this quilt that began with a class with Bonnie Hunter in possibly 2011, but who is counting????  This is the perfect example of “quilters sharing”.  Joyce Triezenberg actually started this quilt in the class and decided it was much more Lillian’s style and colors.  PERFECT!!!!!
