Well we had a great vacation last month-I've had a few issues getting my photos to load into my blog, but at last!, here it is!
I snuck this photo-you're not allowed to take photos- and as you can the quilts are lovely works of art, but many of them are from foreign counties, and sponsored or donated my major quilt publications. There was nothing to represent the history, or the regional quilt makers. I spent only a short time there and decided to move on to visit the famous Hancock's of Paducah fabric store.I wanted to pick up their copy of the Row By Row pattern. They too were less than welcoming, I was once again disappointed by the store. It is large and has a lot of fabric, but it seemed like it was a lot to ask of the employees to answer a question. Anyways, I got the block pattern and we had some time left so I popped in to the Quilt In A Day quilt shop-yes, it's Elinor Burns store. It is housed in a semi re furbished storefront, not far from the museum. I loved the vintage floor tile, isn't it pretty!
Inside the small museum are nice displays of the various roles Andy Griffith played as well as mementos from the show and other cast member items.
