AQS show

I have been blogging all along in the privacy of my mind but now I am  stepping lightly into the blog world, for real!  I am just back from  Paducah (KY) and let me introduce you to Units 19: Cityscape, the piece that was juried in the 27th Annual AQS Quilt Show and Contest  from April 27-30, 2011.

Due to high water along the lower Ohio River at Paducah, the  floodgates that protect the city had to be installed to prevent the city to look the way it did in 1937.

I did not need to use my kayak and scuba diving equipment after all!

Stay tuned for future updates!
