Frogs in Paducah & Stash Quilts
My friend, Jane has been making FROGs (Fully Rely On God) for her church members for some time now. There is a map of the world posted in their community area and photos showing where the frogs have traveled. Connie and I took our frogs to Paducah! In addition to the brick photo from my last post, the frogs were checked in the First Aid booth and perched atop the Viewers Choice sign. For the Welcome To Paducah sign, we had to climb over a fence and clear a ditch near our hotel to get that picture.
The AQS Museum had a wonderful display of miniatures this year. The quilts are also in a book which was for sale in the Museum Store. While checking the store, we found these cute little mini chicken pincushions. I sat him on my thread to showcase his tiny stature.
Award winning quilter, John Flynn, from Billings, MT brought his victorian patchwork horse, which was stationed in the lobby outside of the 2nd floor exhibit area of the Convention Center. It's next stop is the exhibit “4 Guys & Their Quilts” which will be at the American Quilter's Society Museum from May 16th until August 12th.
Thank you for accepting my blog into the Stash Quilts ring. I've been reading the blogs here for awhile and counting down the three months until I could apply for membership. Time flies when you're having fun!
Happy birthday to my childhood best pal and lifetime friend, Patsy! I hope your day is as special and wonderful as you are.
