Local Newspaper Article

Imagine my surprise today when I opened my local paper and saw an article on a quilt I had quilted, called “Decadent Goose:”

Here is another picture of my quilting when I was working on this quilt:

This quilt was pieced and owned by Candy Brown.  Here is a full shot of the quilt after the binding:

The article says that the quilt was selected as a semi-finalist at AQS Paducah and that “Brown and quilter Carla Barrett, of El Dorado, were chosen to display the quilt, “Decadent Goose.”

There is a nice picture of Candy in her quilting studio in the article.

As soon as the article makes it online, I will let you all know.  I had my photo taken last week regarding the guild quilt for the same paper.  Apparently there will be a future article on the Guild Opportunity Quilt.

Anyone going to Paducah?    Regards, Carla

  3. Carla,

    I have great fun catching up with your blog! Beautiful work. I have a question for you I hope you could share with me the answer… how do you mark your quilts when you use stencils?
    By the way, I have the same Barbara Chainey stencils. I have not used it very much because I find it a pain to mark with fabric marker…
