Sharon missed out on the Paducah show this year so I went out in sympathy and quilt shop-hopped with her on the first day I was there. We had a great old time, visiting about 6 shops and making a few purchases here and there (what happens in Indiana stays in Indiana, right?!)
|Marie Webster's quilts.|
We had a lovely time studying her quilts, and were amazed, intrigued and inspired by the work that went into them.
|Beautiful baskets. Love that handle!|
|A baby quilt.|
We marvelled at the borders/edges -
Well worth the visit!
While we were there we had a look at this fun exhibit - check out the wee figures holding the plate glass up!
|These would have been 2-3 inches tall. Amazing!|
The show and tell continued with Sharon pulling out all her quilts and flimsies....that went on deep into the night and was very enjoyable!
|Sharon and a couple of her beautiful old quilts.|
Hmm, now how to replicate that block....
And last, but not least, more quilty pleasures. Doniene is another bloggy friend I have met and stayed with (2013). Both of us were a little late with our Christmas mailing this year but look what arrived at Nashville for me.....
Not one - but two lovely small quilts :-)
|Such a happy quilt, I know I'll find place for |
|Beautiful handquilting :-) the first hand quilted piece I own!|
And that, my friends, is that! The adventures continue - where will I be popping up next time I wonder?
'till next time,
