quilts hanging all over the airport.
Tony (our host) was very gracious and asked me is there somewhere I would like to go to....yes Hexie House, paper pieces as I knew Katja Marek was giving a talk, perfect opportunity to buy her book and have it signed.
I was lucky enough to also buy MSG new book that has just been released in Nantes.
The next stop was a bright sign, beckoning me.... "FABRIC Sale"
Hancocks was also mentioned, we drove past...and the line was long. DH looked at a graph on the Hancocks web page and the best time to go was early morning, so that will be tackled on Thursday before I venture into the quilt show at the Convention centre.
We all went to dinner in Calvert City at a place called Crackerbarrel, this restaurant is dry, so DH settled for earl grey tea.
Onto our home for the next 4 days where we will be staying with Tony and Elva.
After a comfortable nights sleep, up had breakfast then off to Hancocks, the line was no better and all the coaches were lined up....oh well now or never....
Inside was just as busy, but very organised and I did not have to wait long for my metres of fabric to be cut
After my visit to Hancocks, Elva and DH dropped me off at the convention centre, DH will have some well deserved R & R
The food area was outside under tents.
A whole cloth quilted.
Always nice to run into a fellow Aussie, Karen Styles from Sommerset Cottage, and in the background, is her gorgeous new quilt.
There was also a double one
To finish off this was my viewers choice, the detail and imagination that went into this quilt was absolutely amazing and so creative.
I will continue in a later blog about my adventures in Paducah.
