It is a magical journey that starts the moment we enter the building. It provides pleasure to our senses. We are surrounded with beauty on every side.
We need a plan! Where do we start? Do we look at the quilts first?
In the years since that first Quilt show, I have attended the Quilt Festival in Chicago and the AQS Quilt show in Paducah. Each one has its own unique spin on the Quilting community. It's what drives the psychological part of our desire to make beautiful things. The mere thought of a trip to a Quilt show is enough to start my exit from reality. It is a mystery that once again brings me back to the reason why I love to quilt. For the beauty of it, and the love of seeing and experiencing what others have created in the world of fabric.
(p.s. I had planned to go to Paducah this week, but due to my accident and surgery I cancelled my plans. Maybe another year.)
