Featured Quilt - Second Place Small Wall Quilts: Movable Machine Quilted at Paducah 2024

Windmills by Mary Anne Fontana won Second Place - Small Wall Quilts: Movable Machine Quilted (Sponsored by INNOVA) at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2024. Mary's quilt draws inspiration from three windmills taken from her own photograph that are beautifully thread painted in a fantasy-like red, blue, and purple color scheme. Placed across a lush and free-motion quilted landscape of similar red, blue, and purple hues, these windmills stand as tall and strong focal points that immediately catch the viewer's eye and demands their attention.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: For The Love of "Liberty"

"Give Me Liberty" by Pati Fried

Give Me Liberty is a celebration of Pati's passion for Liberty Fabrics. As she was working on this quilt, Pati was gifted the 30-year-old stashes of two dear friends, Diana McClun and Darra Williamson. Brought to tears by the gesture, Pati of course then needed to name the quilt Give Me Liberty for its use of Liberty Fabrics from the stashes. To achieve the striated feeling of the background, Pati used the selvages of the fabrics she was using for the main quilt and adorned the top with a bursting flower design made with hand appliquéd petals that she says features every color under the sun. While very beautiful in its own right, Give Me Liberty serves a functional purpose as well, for it will be featured as the main attraction at the venue where her daughter will soon be getting married.
