The Shawnee resident ranks third in the international quilt competition




By Elisabeth Slay The Shawnee News-Star [email protected]

Shawnee resident and longtime quilt Jane Powers was ranked third in the small wall quilt entry category first with her Iris Rhapsody quilt at the AQS Paducah quilt competition in Kentucky on April 27th.

Powers said she was very excited and honored to receive her award, which included a ribbon and a $ 750 prize.

It was one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me. It was a complete shock. I had no idea I would win, Powers said.

She explained that she was just happy to be selected to participate in the competition, which included another 405 quilts from 43 states and 15 countries.

It has always been a dream of mine (to be in this race), Powers said. It was a total surprise. It was amazing and a little incredible.

She said there were 40 people in her category and it took her a little over a year to make her quilt, which she only made and designed by hand.

Powers has competed in smaller races before, but this was by far the largest competition in which she has participated.

She has been making quilts for about 20 years and was inspired by her great-grandmother to learn this kind of art.

I always wanted to make a quilt. Grandma made quilts and we had them around the house growing up, she said. So I made one and I think I got the small defect and kept doing them.

Throughout her time working quilts, she has made different types with different designs.

For Powers, the best aspect of making quilts is the creative process of putting the pieces together and seeing what the design or pattern they do.

Hailing from Tennessee, Powers and her husband moved to Shawnee in October 2021 to be closer to family.

Powers plans to teach quilt classes and continue working on a new quilt to enter the competition in the coming years.
