More From the Show


I hope to get back into my normal routine and get quilting again – since we got back from Paducah it has been one thing after another – today I hope to get some hexies going and more applique on the vine.  In the meantime here are more quilts from the show.

The big hall showing some of the quilts hanging.


Vendors – once again it was one display of long arm machines and sit down machines to try out and get information on.  Lucky for me there was a Juki dealership there and I was able to find out how to get the automatic threader to work for my machine.  I purchased my Juki TL 2010Q from another quilter who had sent for hers on line – she didn’t have anyone to show her how to use it but was able to figure it all out easily as this is a straight stitch only machine – but she couldn’t figure out how to use the threader.  I had found a video but it moves so fast I couldn’t figure it out either when I bought it from her.  Finally now I can sit down and practice and see if I remember what I was told – but I have barely been home – keep your fingers crossed that I remember what I was shown.

    I hope you can remember all the steps for your needle threading of your Juki… I think that is a handy thing I miss from having one on my Janome… unfortunately it wasn’t a high end machine and it eventually quit working.. the needle threading option did… the machine was a good one and helped me as I learned how to quilt until I went vintage…
    I enjoyed the quilt shots you showed today… I am easily overwhelmed and quilt shows seem to overwhelm me with color ! lol Kinda weird I guess but I am enjoying seeing your “show” in bits instead of all at once as some others have shared.
    Have a good day getting back to routines! Kathi

      quilt shows are overwhelming! so many quilts and you wander from one to another and sometimes back again and by time you leave you have forgotten half of what you saw! just too many to take in I think

    So much eye-candy can be overwhelming. It is absolutely acceptable to take a few days to readjust. Thank you for sharing 🙂

      LOL – thanks – sometimes after seeing so many quilts in one place is over whelming and then the vendors! oh my

    I thought that there would be all kinds of vendors, that’s what I like. I always went to the Denver sewing expo and there were so many fun classes to take and hundreds of vendors besides the sewing machines. I guess it’s just a different show. There’s always so much to do after a trip, isn’t there? Thank you for the pictures and hope you have some time to stitch.

      they have classes too but you have to sign up for them in advance – I never take them as I don’t want to take a day to do that too – I like to wander at my own pace and go with Mike or Melanie who move as quickly as I do – I really finish a quilt show a lot faster then some I know but I don’t take hours and hours to go through the place – half a day and I’m done

    I used to go to at least 2 big shows a year but lately only go to the Mancuso show in Hampton. You should come visit your sister in February to go to that show too!

      🙂 I normally go to no shows at all LOL – this was an odd year to go to Houston in November and then Paducach in September – two in one year is unusual – usually I go about every other year or so!

    Thanks for letting us tag along on your Paducah trip, Karen! Loved seeing all those quilts… I have never been to a big quilt show, but I am sure it would overwhelm me! Still, I hope I do get to one someday….I know it would be great….
    Thanks again for sharing!

      it is a bit overwhelming – especially the first time you go to a show – it’s like OMG – and one of the best things about Paducah for me is going to Hancock’s of Paducah LOL – really for that place you walk in the door it’s like “where do I start” it is a huge fabric store – so much fabric that I really rarely get much because it’s like where do you start! I did get a bit of the neutrals that I showed the other day there
