Day 2 in Paducah

I went to a Fabric Frenzie at the National Quilt Museum at 8 am held outside with about 4 tables with fabric on it.   For $10.00, all the fabric you can put in a quart baggy and still shut it.  The fabric was donated and it benefited the museum.  What fun and orderly chaos, it was three people deep, and as bags were filled, people left the table and gave others more room. Most pieces were half yard chunks of fabric. I went inside the museum where there was a display of a challenge -Quilts made from a traditional block - Basket Block. Also an  exhibit of quilts from England- art quilts including one made from English paper piecing only with paper on both sides. there was an outline of a woman in the colors of the paper.

Lots of vendors to see and lots of quilts to see too. I ran into ???  from Creston Quilts and Other Notions, who's aunt's quilt is also in the show - they were doing the quilt show in one day!!  Carla sent me a text so I had to call her back while shopping.

Outside for lunch was a food area, and there were lots of vendors serving food state fair style and picnic tables under tents. It was cool and I wore my new sweatshirt with the club logo on it.   With celll phones it was easy to connect with C and D.  A drawing is being held for a red Ford Focus with  quilt decorations. 

Around 4 in the afternoon it was pouring down rain but had stopped by 6 pm when  I had met up with C+D when the show closed up. We ate supper at Cracker Barrel with Colleen meeting a lady "Crafty Bear" who she has talked to on Quilting Board after over hearing her comment about it.
One thing I got from is a pattern for a pineapple quilt. Check it out! time for shower and breakfast. More later.
