Dog Walks Girl, the quilt, is well traveled now.  After a little Florida spring break at the AQS QuiltWeek Daytona Beach show, it is at the Paducah show which opens this week-- April 20-23rd.  I just learned that Dog Walks Girl is a winner, but the fiends at AQS...whoops, FRIENDS are building happy suspense by not yet revealing where the quilt placed.  

The Awards Presentation is available online Tuesday April 19 at 5 pm CST.  Join me and watch it here   

On Wednesday April 20, the full list of award winners and photos of quilts will be published here  Dog Walks Girl was awarded the Honorable Mention in the category.  Thank you for the honor!  I should mention that AQS publishes a show catalog of the Paducah QuiltWeek, available at the American Quilter link below.

Up next, Dog Walks Girl will appear with AQS at QuiltWeek Syracuse, NY July 27-30th. 

The quilt arrived home in good shape, and I am enjoying the Catalogue of Show Quilts.  

Not yet through with adventures, Dog Walks Girl was selected to be published in the QUILT ART engagement calendar 2017 by Klaudeen Hansen.  I have been using this calendar for years! On a September 2017 page, I will be greeted by my own quilt.  You can order your copy here

Now the dog is ready to walk the girl.  pjb
