Here are my five favorites from AQS Paducah Quilt Show.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…
These are a few of my favorite things:
There are definitely A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS at AQS Quiltweek, Paducah! Every year my friend, Nancy, and I meet more friends in Paducah and spend 3 1/2 days studying the works of art hanging in the show and, like the 20,000+ other quilters, we browse (and sometimes buy) the latest gadgets in the quilting industry–and a bit of fabric to boot. This year a few booths stood out to me and I’d like to mention them here–click on the name to learn more about each one.
Quilts of Valor are near and dear to my heart (stay tuned for a future post all about Quilts of Valor). Northcott Fabrics had a booth bringing attention to this special way to thank a veteran. Check out the Stars and Stripes Collection for your next Quilt of Valor!
My Favorite Author is almost always in attendance to sign books! Check out NYT bestselling author Marie Bostwick‘s newest book, The Promise Sisters. I’ve read her Cobbled Court Quilt novel series many times and love them, but I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with her latest book!
Martelli Cutting Systems are WOW! Would I love to have the cutting table! It’s important to note that you need the mat AND the rulers AND the rotary for them to work. But a table the tilts toward you saves your back and shoulders when cutting strips or yardage. If you ever see their booth, STOP! It doesn’t hurt that they are located in Pensacola, FL! (See why I like that HERE.
The WOOL and COTTON COMBO are HOT! One thing that stood out in the vendor booths was the use of bright beautiful wools on fun cotton quilts. “Dark” no longer describes wool projects! There were many vendors I could mention, but the one that caught my eye (and grabbed my money) was…Applique After Hours. Check out Angela’s designs and new book! I’m a softie for wool thread! YUM.
We always like to say “hi” to our English friends! They are a friendly shop in the Paducah area with great service and lots of smiles!
We’ve certainly had our share of raindrops this year where I live, especially in this last week. My heart goes out to all of those dealing with the water and losses. You will continue to be in my prayers.
