Paducah quilt show pictures

I had a great time at the quilt show last weekend in Paducah, Kentucky.  So many beautiful quilts.  and....the dogwood trees were in full bloom!  so amazing to see.

Here are some of the quilts I saw....

the dogwood trees were in bloom all over the city

I saw this great quilter and was able to speak with her for a moment.  She was so gracious and sweet.  I first got into quilting years ago when I watched her on PBS.

This is the group I traveled with to go to the show.  These Mississippi quilters are an awesome group.  This was taken at the Cracker Barrel the last day of our trip. I made some new sweet friends.

And this bloomed at home while I was away.  My DH sent me this picture!

Another I Spy quilt finished

I put this quilt top together in early 2013 and finally was able to quilt it.  I did it all on my regular machine.  I think I am getting better at controlling where the stitches land.
Here are a couple of pictures
