Paducah Fall Show
Changes in Judging at the Paducah Fall Show:
They are trying something new with the
judging at Fall Paducah. The panel of three judges will judge each of the 15
categories for first thru third and honorable mention in each category. The
judges will decide the "Judges Choice Award". The fifteen first place
winners will be notified by September 10th. Those winners will then be voted on
for "Best in Show", "Best Wall Quilt" and first through
fifth place. Attendees at the show will be able to vote in person at the show
and people can vote online.
Here is the link to that info: http://www.quiltweek.com/locations/fpah17/fpah17-new-for-2017/
It is a great opportunity for quilters to have a say in winners for this show - even if they cannot attend in person.

Ladies who made the quilt -
In early March, Leslie Phillips, Rita Hollenbacher, and Linda Arbuckle had the honor or representing the guild at the Tellico Lake American Legion. The Legion Post presented a check to us for the Quilts of Valor. Our reps were touched to hear a few of their members tell the importance of quilts they have previously received.
