Where do innkeepers go to unwind? Yup…Paducah, Ky; home of the largest quilting /fabric store I’ve ever seen, Hancock’s and home of the National Quilt Museum. Well, to be perfectly honest, Penny and I are traveling south to visit our Son, wife & Grandkids in Louisiana. The trip to Paducah is one of Penny’s “bucket list” dreams. LOL….look at her excitement as she walks into the store….she was shaking with nervous energy! Funny!
I won’t share with anyone the embarrassing amount of money she invested on cloth today, but I will say that she is a VERY happy lady and I suspect she will be busily making quilts for some time to come.
We visited the National Quilt Museum in the Old Port area of town on the edge of the Ohio River; absolutely beautiful renovation of the old section of town. No photos allowed inside the museum, so you’ll just have to imagine the incredible beauty of these works of art. With permission, I did take one picture of one quilt in the lobby….absolutely stunning work of art. Believe it or not….it is a wood carving! To see pictures, you will need to visit their website.
