Featured Quilt - By The Barn's Early Light

Ohio Barn in Early Morning Light by LeAnn Hileman won the AccuQuilt Best Wall Quilt Award at AQS Quiltweek Paducah 2022. LeAnn says of her quilt, "Light and shadow fascinate me. I saw this barn early one morning while traveling in Ohio and returned the following morning to see a grand demonstration of it. This quilt is the result." LeAnn used hand appliqué and machine quilting to capture the grandeur and majesty of the barn overlooking the hillside. LeAnn's quilt also took home the Best Hand Workmanship – Innovative award at the 2021 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Journey to the Past
"Longing for the Past" by Nancy Prince

In Longing for the Past (51" x 31), Nancy says that thread is the tie that binds this quilt together. Approximately 12,000 yards of thread, over 100 thread colors, and close to 3 million stitches are intertwined throughout the thread-painted designs. No embroidery cards were used. Hand-painted fabric was used for the background and painted quilt bias binding created each individual board of siding on the house and church. Longing for the Past is a step back into a seemingly simpler moment in time.

Nancy shares a great story about standing near it at a show and overhearing a man who, after reading that the quilt took over 600 hours, said to his wife, "That woman's got way too much time on her hands."
