Paducah – the rest of the days (a bit late)
I love the title of the last post: Paducah – Day One! As if I was going to have time to blog every day that we were there! LOL
We had a great visit, and saw lots of friends. Here are a few pictures from the rest of the event.
I finally got to see the Tentmakers of Cairo in the flesh. My friend Jenny Bowker discovered them and has done such a great job introducing them to the world. The work is stunning.
This is Tarek Abdelhay, one of the Tentmakers of Cairo, working on a new piece, surrounded by curious applique-rs trying to figure out how he does it.
We attended a wonderful lecture by our friend Philippa Naylor about her life as an award-winning quilter. Yes, that’s her award-winning quilt behind us.
A quick visit with very popular longarmer Sue Patten – who inspired the writing of “You Can Quilt That Out”.
That night, we attended the Ricky Tims night. It ended with the most incredible wall of his quilts, filling the stage!
We had a great weekend. Then we drove back to Delaware to continue our own touring. More about our adventures later…..
