People in Paducah

Here are some of the things other than quilts that I saw while in Paducah.

John Flynn was demonstrating his quilting system.



Ricky Tims was in his booth visiting with fans.



Eleanor Burns dressed as Dolly Madison was doing her show.



 Lori Smith is in the jeans facing her booth.  She turned around just as I was taking the photo.



I almost missed Froncie Quinn of Hoopla Patterns.  I forgot to take her photo, but she did autograph this book for me.


There were lots of places to get something to eat.

Yes, this is mine.  I did my part when I bought this because the proceeds went to the Boy Scouts.

Picnic area to have lunch or just to rest.

You have to be old enough to remember The Bob Newhart Show to get a chuckle out of this food stand.


I think a lot of the people sitting along the curbs are waiting for their busses.


I love going down to the Ohio River to watch the barges.



This is the flood wall along the Ohio River.  The artwork on it is amazing.


Here is a close up of one of the panels.  The guy on the right is painted on there.


 Artwork as far as the eye could see.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Great pics! I've never been to Paducah, but I'm gonna get there one day!

And it's funny.....my hubby has a friend, Darrell, and every time he says he's talked with him, I always say, "Oh, you mean Larry, Darrell and Darrell?" Ha!

Thanks for sharing your pix! I didn't get down to Paducah this year but each time I've gone I had a wonderful experience.

Thanks for sharing the ambiance of Paducah--amazing artwork. So good of you to make the sacrifice of eating that concoction for the sake of the Boy Scouts! We do what we have to do!! : )
Yes, I remember Newhart and Larry and "this is my brother Darrell and this is my other brother, Darrell". They just don't make 'em like they used to!
