Home from Paducah...

Well after a long ride and many stops along the way I am home. Macbeth and the cats are very happy...we went for a long walk and they all got their treats. I have unpacked about half the car and will do the remainder in the AM.


I was a bit shocked at the amount of damage we saw in many parts of Kentucky, Tennasee and Georgia. I didn't stop for photos...you've all seen them. My heart breaks for these people.


Ocean Wave Quilt...look at the depth the pink creates




Back to Paducah day two...


First thing in the morning I went to the "Woman's work is never done" lecture by Gerald Roy. He presented several of his quilt tops and discussed why he collected them. It was a fun collection...




This red wheel quilttop is so graphic that even several rows back I was impressed. It reminds me of the single girl's ring quilt that some of the quilters in blog-land are making.

When I heard about all the rain and flooding and tornados (sp?), I was very worried for you. So glad you are home safe and sound. Tell us more about the exams and did you receive your certification??? Enjoy a nice rest but be sure to post so we know how you did. Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

Oops, almost missed the comment about the Pilgrim Roy collection. As far as I know it's not being sold, but there were Pilgrim Roy "Challenge Quilts" being auctioned in Paducah.
