Thelma Childers and Judi Madsen teamed up to make this imaginative floral quilt. They won 1st Place in the Bed Quilts, Longarm Machine Quilted category at the AQS QuiltWeek quilt contest in Paducah!
Thelma says that she stepped out of her usual quilting territory to make this quilt!
Interesting note: Thelma and Judi met for the first time on stage at the 31st Annual Awards Ceremony for the quilt contest at AQS QuiltWeek – Paducah, Kentucky 2015! They were called to the stage as winners, and as they walked away, Thelma exclaimed, “It’s wonderful to meet you in person!” Their work was coordinated by mail, e-mail, and phone prior to the event.
