    I have too. I have a friend who lives in Portland, Tenn. and I would LOVE to pick her up and go. But it's a LONG way from California.

    I was considering posting something about this so glad you did... My friend and I are driving up to the KY-TENN border on Wed and then doing the yard sale down to Gadsden, AL.

    I, too, am hoping for some super quilty finds.

    Last year we started at Gadsden and got as far as Chattanooga. Ya don't get far. The traffic is horrendous. And it's pretty hot too. But we had a blast.

    127 is 'right over' the border into Ohio...wonder if any of the eastern Indiana quilters are going...

    This is under pictures - should it be under events?

    Never heard of this, but sure sounds like fun! Wouldn't it be fun to get a bunch of us together and hit as many miles we could?

    I'm going this year for the first time, we are getting on at Lexington KY. They say take water, sunscreen and something to carry everything in. Our friend is driving so I plan to sit in the back seat and English paper piece on the way. Will post a few pics when we get back.

    I wish I could go, it sounds great. It's just a little to far for me to go. Please let us know what great buys you get.

    OMG. I have never heard of this before. Is it the same time every year? I love yard/garage sales. This would be so much fun. How would you bring all the stuff back that you bought? LOL Can anyone here tell us about some of the things you found when you went before? I live in Arkansas and right now it is 100 degrees with humidity of 108-110. Why are these things always in the hottest part of the summer?

    DH and I have gone at least 5 times. Can't this year cause we're out west. We usually go north from Chattanooga Tennessee for at least 200 or 300 miles. We've brought home everything from "whatever are you going to do with that ratty old thing?" my $25 spectacularly used/loved heavy quilt from the 40's to watermelons, peaches, old blue bottles, antique coke memorbilia (sp?) and lots of great "junque". If you can make any part of this yard sale, go for it!

    Living in Boyd county, we travel to Frankfort, KY (about 2 hours from home) where DH daughter lives and travel south from there. We love to navigate this each year, trouble is, we only make it 15-20miles of the 600+ scheduled. But there is only so much you can see in one day. I found a Featherweight there about three years ago. The most incredible day! Always good for quilt related goods and so much more.......

    I went 2 years ago for the first time. I had a blast. My niece went with me. Was not quilting at the time so didnt think to look for material. Started in Gadsen Alabama and went with in 30 miles of Ohio state line. Was wore out by then, so headed back home to Florida. Ya gota go sometime if you have never been. Its just fun meeting new people while finding those treasures you cant live without.
