I live in the eastern part of KY, so Paducah is about a 7 hour drive. You are so right about getting a hotel. It's almost impossible. My husband forgot about the show and we.nt fishing one year. He was able to get a hotel room for only one night. Everything is booked for miles around.
I want to compliment you on your beautiful quilts. They are stunning, and you are truly a quilt artist

Wow KJ.. the diversity of your quilts is amazing !! I see you like to venture and try new techniques and every quilt is exceptional.
Thanks for visiting my pics.. the radiant star one is 24in square. The strips to make the mini were cut in 7/8in. I just had it machine quilted by a very good friend she quilted feathers all around it looks really awesome now. All the fabrics except the boarder are batiks. I am currently making a large one of these as well (king) the pattern for the large on is outta last falls American Patwork and Quilting a design by Minick and Simpson.

I haven't gotten to go to the show, since it coincides with work. Bah! But I have been to the Quilting Museum several times. It is spectacular, and highly recommended for you if you get the chance. My husband loves to fish, and travels to Lake Barkley regularly, which isn't that far from Paducah. So when work allows, we take a quilting/fishing mini vacation! In a few years, when I retire, maybe I will get to go to the show every year!

Funny, that's what my daughter just said... :0) It has been calling me, so it is probably time.

When I first started quilting I would finish one thing before allowing myself to start another. But since I was hand quilting, I discovered if I wanted to take a workshop, I had better take it when it was offered, and not wait until I was finished. Then Blocks of the Month became popular, and I often worked on more than one of those at a time. It also helps if you have a space you can keep all those projects separated, and not have to put them away all the time.

When am I going to get a longarm? Good question... :0) Maybe someday.

Thanks, KJ. I'll check it out. I figured she used triangles so there were no "y" seams, which would make it a lot easier, and I was pretty sure she had a template. I used her Giant Dahlia templates for my quilt and that is the only way to go. :0) I also bought her templates for a double wedding ring quilt, but it is still on my "someday" quilt list. My daughter is in college and says she'd like one of those, hand-quilted, for her wedding. She is thinking along those lines (marriage) and suggested I get going on that because she knows how long it will take me to hand-quilt it. I think that as long as she has it before her 10th anniversary, it could still qualify as a "wedding" quilt, don't you? :0)

I can't imagine hand quilting a bed quilt of any size in 3 months! Way to go! I also have a hard time keeping the sun off my quilts, but figure they aren't doing anyone any good in a closet somewhere.

You have some fabulous work here.

Well, I enjoyed looking at them regardless of who made them! I really like your sense of color. I do OK but consider myself a work in progress.

There is a link on the first page of your website to Veda's quilts. Her quilts are very cool. I am going on a quilt retreat tomorrow and we could get a foot of snow here in Minnesota. I bet your weather is much nicer.

Your black & white & red-all over One Block Wonder is wonderful, too. I have fabric and book for a One Fabric Quilt that I can't wait to start on. Have you seen the technique? You start with a wallpaper stripe and by cutting and whacking you get the most marvelous designs. The book is by Kay Nickols. Check it out.

I've not got a great eye for color, so the wonder quilts are good exercise for me. The one I'm working on now is a red background with cowboys and covered wagons, cacti, steers,etc. I thought it would work great, but I think there are too many colors going on. It's cut and laid out, but it will be a while before I get to piecing it. Thanks for replying to my question. Glynnis

Hi KJ,
Never actually stayed at Bear Cabin but did go there for breakfast a couple times. Never went on a quilting retreat before either, and that sounds real fun!
