    I am in Danville, KY right now on Highway 127. Today I saw a pink and white Drunkard's Path quilt. The quilt was tied and the back was ripped pretty bad. The top was perfect and they sold it to me for $7.00. I was able to buy 3 tops and tons of fabric, such great deals. I did not bring any scissors to cut the knots on the Drunkard's Path but I am dying to get this top cleaned up and then quilted. It is made out of bubblegum pink. My other quilts are made from 1930's prints. It has rained a great deal here and many yard sales are closed. We head for home tomorrow but will do the yard sales until we hit 64. Had a great 2 days shopping.

    I live in Crossville, TN & the 127 sale comes right through the center of my town. Have lived here 15 years and have only done the sale a few times. One year we made it as far as the KY border.

    We live just off 127 in Casey county Ky. You wouldn't believe the traffic. Takes 5 minutes or more to get from one side of the road to the other in town cause 127 goes right thru town.

    Yup, 127 runs right through our town and we avoid it like the plague during the sale. Don't want to be rear-ended by somebody with their eyes on the side of the road.

    Some day I'm going to do it. I live in Ohio in the Akron area but it's about 3 hours from me. This is the first I heard of it this year. Did you do any of it?

    I live in Frankfort, Kentucky - it passes right through the town. I avoid it like the plague! There may be great deals but the traffic and parking issues keep me away!

    My friend flew in from Arizona and along with my daughter and myself , we started in the northern part of Ohio and went to the middle of Kentucky. We had so much fun even though it was terribly hot. we may try it next yr but head to Tenn. and work our way up. It is an experience not to be missed
