First Paducah Lesson

My first lesson from this first Paducah experience is…..wait for it…..Pictures Do Not Do a Quilt Justice!  Really. I learned this when I laid eyes on Sharon Schamber’s Mystique. I had seen pictures of this quilt in a magazine and online, but in person it was even more amazing. You just can’t see everything in a picture. (Reason number one to go to every quilt show possible!) Below are a couple of my attempts to capture this particular quilt followed by many links to other pictures of this quilt. None of these pictures show you what it really looks like. (Pay close attention to the corners. You can’t really see the complexity of those corners.)
