#35105, Artful Log Cabins

Day: Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Van Buren Room
Teacher: Katie Pasquini Masopust
Level: Advanced
Member: $88 Retail: $110

 


The Log Cabin block is so very versatile we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition or overlay a grid, that can be an even grid, an uneven grid, a curved, or a random grid. This linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then Log Cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value, and visual pathways.

Quilters throughout history have adapted designs to fit their individual aesthetic. Our antique quilt collections for 2017 are full of unique variations of similar patterns. The pattern may be the same but the fabric choices, piecing methods and overall designs are reflective of the resources that were available to each maker in her time. Mary Kerr is proud to share this Variations exhibit in conjunction with The Rotary Club Paducah. Mary is an AQS Certified Appraiser, author, instructor, historian, and curator of all things fun and quilty from Woodbridge, Virginia. The Show also offers a merchant mall with 13 vendors. For up-to-date exhibit information, visit www.rotaryquiltshow.com.

About the Rotary Antique Quilt Show
At the request of Paducah’s AQS Quilt Show founders Bill and Meredith Shroeder, the Rotary Club of Paducah embarked on the first Antique Quilt Show and Sale in April 1989. The annual show is now an official sanctioned event of the American Quilters Society. The Paducah Rotary Antique Quilt Show offers some of the world’s most beautiful quilts, with each year featuring various “themed” quilts. In addition, the show offers a merchant mall with 13 vendors.

Proceeds = Scholarships
Proceeds from this show provide college scholarships annually for local students through the Rotary Education Assistance Program (REAP).  In 2010, the Rotary Club of Paducah initiated the idea of the Community Scholarship Program as a public-private partnership with strong participation from Rotary, the City of Paducah, McCracken Fiscal Court, WKCTC, and a number of local businesses along with Paducah Junior College Inc and partnering high schools. The intent of this scholarship is to provide gap funding to assist students in attaining a two-year degree or industry certification at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Getting to the Robert Cherry Civic Center: Ride the free shuttle from the AQS Bus Stop at the Convention Center to the Robert Cherry Civic Center for the Rotary Show.
