I’m going to Paducah! As if the Singular Stars exhibit (showcasing Lone Star quilts from my most recent book, Singular Stars) isn’t enough, I have one more reason to visit next month. My quilt All Your Favorite Songs was juried into the show. The quilt will be the cover of my son’s second album. It’s 69” square and has 3906 pieces (some very small). Dawn Cavanaugh outdid herself with the beautiful quilting she added to it.
The song "All Your Favorite Songs” was written to honor my husband. It’s about my son Will returning home to help out after Steve’s stroke, coming home to where the stereo is playing all Steve’s favorite songs.
So if you’re planning to attend the Paducah show, think of that little story when you see the quilt. I know I will.
