I had such a great time and felt so fortunate to go to the "big show" with my dear friend, Mary.
Here is our trip in review:
I got a great spot just off the "winners circle".
I really really liked these 2 quilts
You can see the winners on the AQS site here.
We went to a great Red & White lecture.
I met two really fun women who read FWB and follow on IG. I could have hung out with them all day!
Here are the blog friends I met.
Kevin of Kevin the Quilter. It was really fun to talk quilts with him. His quilt made it into the show book and looked amazing in the show. Jump over to his blog to see lots of great quilt photos from the show!
Pokeytown Kim. She was sitting right in front of me at the R&W lecture. She had the best top on! It was fun to finally meet her in person.
Cecile of Patchwork Inspiraitons. We are new blog friends. She came over from France and was just so sweet to make time to meet me. Her English was excellent.
Speaking of food - the trucks had all my favorites!
We found great BBQ buffet
Be still my heart (literally) funnel cakes and lemonade.
We saw the lovely antique Hexie collection by Mary Kerr.
We went to an amazing lecture by Gerald Roy. They were all tops and were soooooo good.
This was the view of our last dinner at the Yatch Club where we stay.
Being there with Mary made it such a special week for me
If you have a chance, grab a quilt buddy and enjoy QuiltWeek in Paducah. You'll be glad you did! Thanks for coming along with us.
