What a fun time I had in Paducah this year. The winner of the Modern Quilt category was made by the Coffee sisters who were in our guild when they lived in St Louis. It was exciting to see and celebrate with them. I was inspired by many of the quilts in the show and enjoyed the many entries from other countries (besides Japan 🙂 ).
While downtown, I took the opportunity to snap some pictures of the Paducah Beauty School signs that I’ve admired for years.

- 2011 – 65 yds
- 2012 – 60 yds

After the show, DH and I visited two microbreweries that opened in Paducah recently. The Paducah Brew Werks is only blocks from the convention center and has 4 of their brews as well as several others on tap from regional microbreweries. Nice atmosphere and good beer. The second one is located in an old Coca-cola building that I’ve long admired. In fact, I’ve taken pictures of it before.
