I just wanted to touch on our trip, my first trip to Paducah to the AQS show. I was lucky to have gone with 2 very special women. Chris and Eileen. Chris has been going to Paducah for so many years I lost track. Every year she helps hang the quilts and take them down. What a wonderful experience that was for me. Up close and personal with the wall quilts. I did't take many photos because I bought the show book
On our way in to Paducah Chris pointed out the Flying Geese ( the bridge) It was especially neat because the Quilt Museum's challenge this year for New Quilts from Old Favorites was Flying Geese block. I was excited to go to the museum to see Chris's quilt. Hers was picked to be in the show and travel for 4 years along with the other quilts. They were all pretty amazing.

Let me talk about food for a minute. Chris knew
all the good restaurants and coffee shops. We had Bubble Tea and some really good meals. I especially loved the Mexican Restaurant that we lived above for the week.
