AQS Knoxville Show…

Knoxville is a lovely city and the AQS Show is full of great quilts, exhibits and vendors. A good time is being had by one and all!

One exhibit that is getting talked about a lot is the Artfull Bras. There are 50 one-of-a-kind "art" bras made by the Quilters of South Carolina to raise public awareness of breast cancer, to remember those lost to the disease, and to honor the survivors. Each artist began with a 36C padded, underwire bra. The design had to completely cover the bra. There wasn't a theme and no two are alike.

FifiAndMimi-MaryKateHorton
Mimi and Fifi by Mary Kate Horton is very touchable – and pointy!

Hooters-SherrySadler
Hooters by Sherry Sadler is… feathery and has a 1970s attitude.

MonkeyBusiness-AnitaBowen
I'm a fan of sock monkeys to Monkey Business by Anita Bowen was a personal favorite.

PastelParty-JudyTwitty
Pastel Party by Judy Twitter is perfect for a Victorian lady don't you think?

One thought on “AQS Knoxville Show…

  1. Thank you for this post (and others), I’ve really enjoyed reading about and seeing your quilts. I work for the American Quilter’s Society, and just wanted to let you know (if you didn’t know already) when you become an AQS member you receive one year (six issues) of American Quilter Magazine and receive your choice of a FREE book from select titles. You will also receive discounts on all purchases from our store, access to exclusive video, and much, much more.
    The membership cost $25 and you receive $13 off each AQS quilt show you attend, so it essentially pays for itself and could save you money.
    Thank you again for your fabulous blog, keep up the good work!
