A look at my trip with Melinda to quilt mecca.
(I apologize for the SUPER late post)
I went on a fantastic trip with my mother in law and aunt to Paducah, KY for the American Quilters Society Quilt week. We went up Saturday morning and came back that afternoon and we had an absolute ball! There were so many beautiful quilts to see, and about a million different vendors..some of which were questionable 🙂 I also ran into some of my fellow guild members! If I hadn’t been the driver I would have taken more pictures of our trip, the drive up was really picturesque. Old barns in green and yellow fields, big lakes, even a few scary bridges. Okay all bridges are scary. Here are a few of my pictures from our trip!
I hope you enjoy! there are many more pictures on Instagram, and I’ve used #PQW2015 to keep them all together. I’m going to make another post soon, I feel like I’ve been lagging!
Until next time, happy sewing!
…I forgot to blog!
The quilt was completed! 😀 I can now say that it got to its destination in time for the baby shower, too. 😀
This was so fun that I decided to make another one of these as soon as I finish up these couple of bags I need to work on. The next will be using the fabric line The Littles by Michael Miller and will have Riley Blake Fly Aweigh waves for the backing. I’m excited for all my “parts” to come in so I can get it going!
Since this post took a little time, I’ve also been to my guild! We learned improvisational curves from Jayne and perfect machine binding from Stefanie. I even got a new gadget! It’s The Binding Tool and it’s probably right up there with wonder clips as far as amazing. It really helps to clean up where your end pieces come together. I think we all had a great time and we all made some pretty cute things! Here’s what I made.
So now that we’re all caught up, this weekend is Paducah!!! I’m excited, me, my mother in law and aunt are all loading up Saturday morning to go see what all the fuss is about, also Hancock’s. If you also want to see what all the commotion is about, follow me on Instagram this weekend. I’m going to be using #PQW2015 so everything should be (SHOULD…be) together. It looks as though the weather may not be..pleasant, but we’ll make the best of it! I know a few others from my guild are also making the journey to Paducah, are you coming too? Let me know!!
Well, I’ve got some pre Paducah preparation planning to get back to, so until next time! Happy sewing!
P.S. Al had to jump into my photo shoot of the quilt.
