Paducah purchases


I don't need any fabric. Why I came home with some yardage is beyond me, but isn't it gorgeous? I was looking for a few border prints, and in the process found more pieces that wanted to come home with me. This show is only once a year, right? Had to buy the show book, and a few patterns.




The Alzheimer quilts were on display and it was so moving that I bought the cd. It contains all 52 quilts from the exhibit and audio recordings of the artists telling their stories. If you have a chance to see these quilts, don't miss it.

On Monday, Connie and I were browsing through the back room fabrics at Hancock's when who do I think I see? It was Judy LaQuidara! I've been reading her blog for a long time and recently stitched the February 'Quilt for an Hour' quilt she offered on her blog. She was kind enough to pose for a picture. It's not clear whether she bought any of the fabrics she was holding at the time of this photo.



More about our trip tomorrow.

Ooooh, aahhh on the purchases! And how fun to spot Judy. I am not good at that unless I know they will be there and am specifically looking! Good job on the sighting!

The picture on the front of the Alzheimers case is moving in itself - I guess its a picture of one of the quilts - there but for the grace of God go all of us really - kinda makes you think and be thankful
