Default I get to spend a few hours in Paduach!!!!

I am so excited!!!!!!!!!! July 3 I am leaving to drive to my sisters in IL for a nephews wedding. I am going to stop overnight in Paduach making sure I leave early enough, about 6am, to get there before the museum closes. It is a 6 hour drive so i should have most of the afternoon. Have wanted to see it forever. Going to go to Hancocks also, I put a little money aside for that too.

I am so jealous - my daughter lives in Paducah and we don't get to see her enough. Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day store is very close to the Quilt Museum. Don't know when it closes for the day though - but probably earlier than Hancocks of Paducah (not to be confused with a regular Hancock's fabric store - two different stores altogether). You absolutely cannot miss seeing Hancocks of Paducah in my opinion. If you have not been to a very large fabric store, you will be blown away.

I am blessed to live a hour or so away, it is a trip I love making......do check out Quilt in A Day as well. There is a lot to see, maybe you will have to stop on your way back from the wedding as well, lol.
