    Paducah 2013 Quilt Show

    Here's some images from this year's Quilt Show. The crowd was huge, despite the cool and damp weather. To respect the quilter's copyrights on their art, I'm just posting general images, except for the special 'Quilt Like an Egyptian' display. These are Egyptian tent makers and they do some wonderful work...to watch these men gave me a whole new respect for applique. It isn't as precise as traditional applique, but the stitches add to the charm....and they're so FAST! Their work was for sale and many pieces found new homes.

    The crowds were big, but everyone was pleasant and courteous.

    The vendors were awesome!

    I spent tons of money with the vendors...it was a virtual candy store of fabric, tools and knick-nacks

    The YoYo ladies were busy all day.

    The YoYo ladies were busy all day and the crowds were several deep around their table most of the show...I grabbed these shots late Sat afternoon. I grabbed a passer-by and they took a shot of me and Mom too.

    We met Quilt Man!

    Finally, after all these years, My friend and I met the Quilt Man! His trusty sidekick Bobbin wasn't there that day though.

    The Big Paducah banner was a popular photo destination with friends getting their picture snapped all day and then, I just had to show the cute Featherweights all painted up with cool colors. (I have a traditional black one)

    Our tour guide had arranged for Quiltman to meet our bus when we arrived. What a trip he was. It was a great day, beautiful weather and lots to see and spend money on. Got to see Ricky Timms and Alex Anderson. Didn't make it to the Eleanor Burns show though.

    Thank you for posting the pictures. Someday maybe, but it seems so far. I don't have very many quilting friends who I would travel with, so I'm in a bind. Your pictures made me feel like I was there. Thanks again.
