Paducah Best in Show

The latest copy of American Quilter has just landed and is in the process of being sent to subscribers. The award for Best in Show quilt went to "Flower of Life" by Sharon Schamber of Payson, Arizona. What a quilt! She hand-dyed the fabrics for it and even has manufactured a paper that is used for the applique which when it is removed (by washing) allows the fibres to puff up to give added dimension to the applique.

A blog at the following link tells you more about Sharon and her beautiful quilt. The article in the Fall 2007 American Quilter discusses the symbolism in the quilt and the techniques she used. More on the American Quilter's Society (AQS) can be found on their website at
