AQS Olfa Young Designers Okada Award 2008

I’m delighted to say that One Tree Quilt has won an award at the AQS Paducah, KY Quilt Show this year! It received the Olfa Young Designers Okada Award. I am completely excited and honored. This piece is an extension of a 2007 weekly journal quilt that was so intriguing that I decided to make it on a larger scale. Go weekly art! My husband really encouraged me to make this piece on a larger scale and so he is super excited about tHIS award. :)

And yes, I can’t wait to spend the $5000 on art quilting supplies. Here’s looking forward to stimulating the art quilting economy.

If you are lucky enough to be at the show right now, please stop by and smile! All of the AQS award winners can be seen here. By the way, I would like to point out that 3 of the Alzheimer’s Forgetting Piece by Piece artists won awards in this show. Congrats to Diane Gaudynski and Becky Goldsmith.

Happily, One Tree Quilt will visit the American Quilter’s Society show in Paducah, Kentucky this month as a semi-finalist!  This piece was juried into the competition and will be included in the Young Designer’s category.  My Alzheimer’s exhibit quilt, Lost Moments, traveled to Paducah last year as part of the AAQI special exhibit, but it’s great to be in the judged show this year.   For more information on this show, you can check out their site:
