PADUCAH, KY -

This year's Paducah AQS QuiltWeek Best of Show winner was awarded the title Tuesday night during the quilt show's awards ceremony. 

Marilyn Badger from St. George, Utah is taking home the title for her quilt, "Arándano," which is the Spanish word for blueberry.

The quilt took Badger a year and a half to finish.   

She says, after losing her husband, the quilt became her own personal therapy project. 

Badger's quilt is one of 800 submitted for judging this year. 

All the winners will be posted on the AQS website. Click here to check for this year's winners.
