You fancy, huh?

Just to prove this site isn’t a complete fanny-pack-old-lady-bash, I would like to report one of my very favorite quilt encounters of the past. About 3-8 years ago I was chatting about on my cell phone whilst pacing the central hub of the downtown Paducah parking lot when I was interrupted by the man pictured below…

Jody: “No. Yes. No, I told him that. No. Yes!”

Man: “‘Scuse me, Miss?”

J: Quick assessment of rape to robbery probability is low “Yessir?”

M: ‘Can you tell me where I can buy a quilt around here?’

J: “Heh. Well pretty much anywh–”

M: (interrupts) ‘I mean like a real nice one. You know? Maybe with cats on it?’

J: Blank is-this-really-real-?-stare. “Kitties? KITTY CATS, of course! I love those things.” Wide grin.

M: “Yeah, like a fancy one, that I could hang on m’wall?”

J: “Hrrrm. Well if anyone was gonna have a kitty cat quilt it would be that store over there…or you can maybe ask real quilters at the museum?” Points to each location. 

M: “Oh ok, so you think that store has Kentucky quilts?”

Jody: “What?”

Man: “Wildcat quilts! My mama loves UK basketball!”

Jody: (totally dejected) “Oh. Probably nowhere. Bye.”

And when I tell you this blog will be a fair and balanced representation of quilting and the people who love quilts, I DO NOT mean that I will NOT be including my LOVE for kitties and my HATRED for UK Basketball!!

Here is the quilt you should have purchased, sir. SIR! I SAY GOOD DAY!!
