After winning Judges’ Choice in the Gold Coast Quilt Guild’s Red, White, and Beautiful Challenge, Edna Deppen entered her quilt, FLOATING STARS, in the Large Wall Quilts – Hand Quilted category at AQS QuiltWeek® – Paducah, Kentucky 2014. Edna, a frequent Paducah QuiltWeek attendee, worked on the gorgeous hand quilting as therapy during a terminal illness.
Although Edna passed away in February, her quilt received the honor of being shown in Paducah. Her daughter-in-law, Cindy Deppen, inherited Edna’s legacy and is carrying on the quilting tradition in her family.
Watch this video interview and hear Cindy Deppen relate the story of this very special quilt.
