Quilt Show, Car Show and God's Creation

Hi Friends!
I'm back from the AQS show in Chattanooga, TN. well to be honest I've been back for a week. As always when you have been away you have to catch up on a lot of things. So I'll kinda take you through our vacation as we went.

First off here was my seat for the round trip of 1070 miles.

 This seat is also known as my prayer chair. From the time I set my for on the pegs until I step off I am praying. 

I hardly ever put pics of myself on here just have no reason to. So here I am in my Patchwork Threads tee shirt. I thought more people would be wearing theirs but I was the only one.

This quilt really reminds me of Sandy's dog. So I had to get a picture.

This is a quilt that I really liked. Called "A Feather Runs Through It"

Maybe you can see it in this picture. 

This quilt I knew my mom would love so I had to take a picture of it.

Hubby walks by this and says oh I like that you could make one for our bed. Ha! (we have a king size bed) I said yeah right that is a wedding ring quilt hahahaha. 

My bodyguard for the show. (he blends right in right?) hahaha love him!

But as we were going to the quilt show on Saturday morning we kept seeing old cars and trucks. So when we got 2 blocks from the quilt show we looked down a street that was blocked off and lo and behold they were having a car show, A Car Show! Right up my hubby's ally. 

Now he is in his element. Look at that smile.

Let's tell everybody on Facebook.

We got a chance to see something we have never seen while we were out riding around.


Zoomed in.

The next day we got a chance to ride the Tail of the Dragon. (very winding road) Photo credit to 

From there we took the Cherohala Skyway but it was raining, foggy and at some places windy. (scary) This is how far up it goes and considering we live at almost sea level this is high to us.

The next day we went to Cloudland Canyon it is a state park in GA. It was beautiful.

The only draw back was these. This was a small set. There were many of them. The going down was not bad it was the going back up that kills you. 

The next day we went to Amicalola Falls

It was just beautiful.

But when you got to the top and went in the Lodge.

This was hubby's view. You are above all the trees.

And this was my view! God is the BEST designer EVER!!

On our way in we saw fields and fields of sunflowers. It was 5 dollars to have your pic made or you could buy a sunflower for a dollar a stem. You know I love sunflowers but I told hubby on the way back out of the park just slow down on the road I mean we are traveling on a motorcycle. No dirty windshield to snap a pic through.

Now on the quilting front. Ummmm nothing has really gone on sense I finished the "Cross Quilt" you can see that story HERE
I did order the fabric for the binding but.....when I got it it looks like this.

Not sure what happened here but we are missing some of the flower centers on the left side. This is a Lawn material and very expensive so I have emailed the store that I bought it from so I am hoping they can help me. I need every inch of this yard to make binding with.

Well I hope you all are having a great start to your Fall season. The reason I can sit and type out such a long post is because I started getting sick yesterday and last night was not great lets just say. I am doing better than hubby is though. 

Hugs and best stitches to you,

a.k.a. Mrs. Sew & Sew


  1. Wow, what a trip! Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures. What a great two-for-two: a quilt show and a car show in the same town on the same weekend. You couldn't have planned that! Hope you both feel much better very soon!

  2. The Tail of the Dragon is on our wish list. =) Such beautiful pictures of God's glorious creation.


I love to hear what you think. Just remember let's all play nice. ;)
