Hi from Kentucky

It is definitely summer here in Paducah. The temperatures are down into the mid-80s now, but they've been in the 90s with a heat index in the 100s. Too hot for me. Air conditioning, here I come.

The AQS Quilt Expo in Nashville begins next week. We have some great quilts in the contest, and a whole variety of special exhibits. The Chicago School of Fusing quilters will have an exhibit of their art quilts...all fused, of course. They certainly know how to use color in their quilts. And for those who love traditional quilts, an exhibit of quilts inspired by 1840s quilts from the American Quilt Study Group will show off their handiwork. With this being an election year, I thought we needed a patriotic quilt exhibit - we have one, God Bless America, a contest curated by Judy Buckboard, Buckboard Antique Quilts.

I can't wait to see the performance by Joe Cunningham, Joe the Quilter: A Musical Quilt Show. And we'll have a great time at Show & Tell with Eleanor Burns, and Brunch with Sue Nickels.

It is just fun for me to see all of the quilters who come from all over the country. If you still need tickets, check at the Workshop Desk once you arrive at the show. The Workshop Desk will be open at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, and at 8:00 a.m. on show days, until closing time each day.

Hope to see you at the show.
