Agnete Kay — 2011 Quilter of Distinction
AQS Author Receives Honor
by Sylvia J. Thomas
January 31, 2011, Paducah, Ky. –– AQS author and award-winning quilter Agnete Kay is being honored as the 2011 Quilter of Distinction at the 16th Annual Festival of Quilts in Heritage Park, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Agnete began with needlework as a teenager and then caught the quilting bug in the 1980s. Her quilts have been displayed in local and international shows, earning her recognition for block and quilt design in Canada and the United States. Agnete has appeared twice on HGTV (USA) and published One Block = Many Quilts in 1999 with the American Quilter’s Society.
Her quilts largely depict places and events in her life, but Agnete also enjoys just playing with color. She designs her quilts without the aid of a computer, and sews them all by hand, machine, or both.
A display of Agnete’s quilts will be on exhibit in the Canmore Opera House during the Festival of Quilts, May 28–29, 2011. A special presentation to honor Agnete’s contributions to the quilting community will be held on May 28 at 2 p.m.
