|Awesome Winner Award Ribbons|
Went to my first ever AQS show in Paduch, KY last week! What a wonderful time we had. It started out with finding the awesome loft apt. just blocks from the Quilt show and museum. It is on Airbnb (my favorite) and sleeps up to eight. BEAUTIFUL kitchen and large gathering room - all open and light with many windows.

Next challenge was finding other gals to join me. Originally the plan was for a few ladies locally to go and meet up with our good quilting friend who had moved to Tennessee a few years ago. But, turns out she could not attend. So there were just three from our little town. I put out the invitation in the local guild and MOKA (Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas Quilt study group - see their FB group) to find others. Three other ladies contacted me and signed up for the adventure from OKC, Tulsa and Pennsylvania! What awesome new talented and fun quilting friends! We had a blast, cooked and ate meals together, plus had "show & tell" each evening sharing our adventures, the highlights of the show, so much inspiration, and new treasures gathered each day.
Now for the quilts! Here are just a few pictures of some of the amazing quilts!
