This quilt was made with fabric purchased in 2010 in Paducah, KY.

DH and I went there and enjoyed every quilty minute.

I found a fabulous sale on Kona solids (remnants) at Hancocks of Paducah.

I bought it all.

I had a very interesting selection of fabric colors to work with.

That fabric inspired me to create a quilt to remember my fun visit.

I quilted it on my domestic machine.  I stitched in the ditch along the lines of the bargello pattern.

I am giving it to my son for his birthday.

I also did all the quilting on my domestic machine.

I like the Delectable Mountains pattern using cut up half square triangles and found another way to use the half square triangles.
