Paducah Show BooksWhat a wonderful time I had in Paducah.  I went with my friend Darlene and we had a great week.  Suzanne Marshall rode there with us so we had a lovely time chatting away.  For the first time we stayed in a home in the city… more yucky hotels!!!  Our host was delightful and her home was so bright and cheery.  We were fortunate to locate such a wonderful place to stay and it’s centrally located 🙂

We took Alex Anderson’s lecture, an evening of entertainment with Ricky Tims (which was excellent!) and Suzanne Marshall’s lecture.  It was heaven to have several days to stroll through all the quilts.  All and all a wonderful show.

Here are all my purchases in ONE bag 🙂 Yes, it’s a big bag but it’s only ONE bag!  


Here they are out of the bag!  I bought almost 60 yards of fabric and almost all of it was $4/yard! 

Here’s a couple of closer pictures:








The panel with the tree is a needlework from Tambani Textiles & Gifts from Africa.  Some of the villagers are quite skilled needle workers and the not-for-profit organization helps them use their needlework to earn money.  I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet but I know something will come to me.




I must have had too much excitement because I’ve gotten sick but it was well worth it.  Cherie
