this was our 2nd year. Last year we went from Gadsden, Al to Chattanooga, Tn -- had a blast. This year wanted to see new territory so we drove up to the Ky-Tenn border and drove south oh Hwy 127. Enjoyed it again, but it was VERY hot and we had thunder showers Thurs PM and Fri PM.
We picked up some bargains for the house/yard and I found around 70 yds of fabric for less than $45. Largest one purchase was $18.50 for around 25 yards of fabric. Most was not quilt store quality. But this give me lots to play with and try new things. Not so painful if it doesn't come out perfectly.
