QUILT SHOW IN PADUCAH, KY 2006 (part 2)

Is it possible to over-dose on quilts and all things “quilty”? I believe most quilters would say no. Quilters seem to go to quilt shows to see other quilts and buy wonderful fabrics and other supplies. Here is more of the beautiful Quilt Show in Paducah, KY 2006 (part 2).

In today’s world the term is “network” with other quilters. You know – trade ideas of what this particular fabric could be used for. Or how easy/difficult that pattern is. Maybe ask around about what sewing or quilting machine others are using successfully.

Then there are the kind (or not) comments about how that person would have done such and such on the display quilt instead of what was done. Let’s try to be kind or constructive – being snarky does not become us.

When I ask other quilters what they like about quilt shows, the responses always include: other quilters, new ideas, shopping, and feeling revived or energized (especially to start or finish a project).

The Quilt Show in Paducah, KY 2006 was four days of crowds, shopping, new ideas, wonderful displays, beautiful quilts, great classes, and energy. It was an amazing event. Also every year the quilts are different from the previous year.

Enjoy the Quilt Show in Paducah, KY 2006 !!

I hope all the quilters reading this post enjoyed the photos. While the current crisis is not fun or to be taken lightly, being an armchair traveler is great. We can travel in our jammies, with our favorite food or project close at hand, and on our time table.
