  • Cindy Pelkey is an accomplished seamstress, but when her nontraditonal machine pieced, machine quilted, ‘stack-n-whack’ quilt garnered her a blue ribbon at the 2010 Kentucky State Fair, even she was surprised.

    “When I stood in front of it and I saw the blue ribbon, I stood there and I bawled like a baby, just bawled like a baby,” Pelkey said. “I was shocked, but then, of course, when I got home, my head wouldn’t fit through the door frames. I was beyond myself. I told everybody, whether they wanted to know or not.”
