I knew when we got to Kentucky there would be quilts.But is was my plan to get across to Paducah, home of The National Quilt Museum and Hancock's of Paducah.........a place that had seen my money thanks to on line shopping but I had never seen it.
The signs were there......But they were so far apart..........We knew it was coming...........But the traffic was soooooo slow!
Eventually we could see it........this sign is huge and we found it easily.........time to shop....
Some fun Americana fabrics to make a trip quilt as a souvenir.
Green fried tomatoes, crawfish, coffee and burgers. Trees and leaves, red barns and flags, so many little reminders.
Then off to the National Quilt Museum.
Lots of photos from outside....no cameras allowed inside.i should have been so inspired.
The quilts are amazing, the work incredible, like nothing I have seen before.........
I was blown away and even the bloke was enjoying himself amongst all the quilty treasures.
Instead of feeling I could come home and try this and that I just felt FLAT!
There is no way I could ever master those perfect tiny stitches.
My quilts don't even come close to this and they never will. Why do I even bother trying?
A Crisis of Confidence has struck me.
Paducah is a beautiful town, filled with art and history, quilts and beauty...........
I hope I can recover.
