The Complete Quilter: Quilts of Pat Campbell exhibit is  through November 18, 2014 at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky.
 
 With her extensive collection of awards, numerous completed quilts, and knowledgeable books, Pat innovated her way to the top of the quilting world.

One of the most important contributions a quilter can make to their community is growing as a quilter and sharing their experience. She did this through the quilting and appliqué classes she offered over her career, the patterns she designed, and more.

More information about The Complete Quilter: Quilts of Pat Campbell, may be found here.

What makes you laugh? Is it a good joke, a play on words, an off-color innuendo, a riff on something well-known, or slapstick? All of these are represented in the quilts gathered for this exhibition.
