Today’s quilt-makers were challenged by The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky to create original quilts based on classic Oak Leaf & Reel block patterns. Twenty-eight quilters from 15 U.S. states and Taiwan, Germany, and Israel modified Oak Leaf & Reel block designs in imaginative ways, providing a wonderful look at the skills, techniques, and creativity of today's quiltmakers. Support for the contest is provided by MODA Fabrics and Janome America.
