Miller and John Bunge
Greetings from Paducah, Kentucky!
I know: we're too late for the AQS Quilt festival, and now that it's over, it's very QUIET here! I've already visited Hancock's of Paducah (the Mecca, of course!), and intend to stop by Eleanor Burns' Quilt in a Day shop and Paper Pieces HQ tomorrow. While the car isn't exactly empty, I'm sure I can fit a bit of fabric into it!!
We have now sung in ARKANSAS! I was so excited! Now, there's only Mississippi to go, and we'll have completed all the states. It's not going to happen on this tour (very sad face......).
The tour is going very well, and we only have another 3 weeks to go before we drive home again. We've had the chance to spend some "down" time in Miami, Gainesville FL, Atlanta, Nashville, and now Paducah. We've sailed on the Intracoastal Waterway, hiked to the top of Stone Mountain in Georgia, supped with a couple of cousins, and lucked into attending a concert with Emmy Lou Harris!
Enjoying every minute of it!

LAST Star and Plume
block of the month starts June 15th
You are invited to come along on a 24 month ride with me, making your version of the quilts pictured above.
If you have seen us perform during the last 10 years, you have likely
seen this quilt and heard the song that inspired it.
You can make your own version of this quilt!
48 nine-inch Blocks, finishes at
It all starts on June 15th.
I'll also start a Facebook closed group for everyone to join and share the pictures of their blocks.
I hope you can join me for this LAST offering of this Block of the Month!

What I'm Working On
I guess the only thing I have made lately is the double sided Mock Mola using Susan Joy Noyes' pattern while we were in Gainesville FL (shown above). It took an hour to sew (free motion, of course), another 1/2 hour to pull the paper out (because it's double-sided, I had to remove all of it), and an hour and a 1/2 to cut both sides out - they are not cut out the same.
Genie White, the president of the Gainesville quilt guild (Alachua County Day Guild) kindly offered her sewing machine to me for an hour while I sewed it. Thank goodness for quilting friends!!!
I did get the chance to visit one of my quilts, too, while we were in Gainesville Florida. I made this commission last year and sent it down. This was the first time I had visited it since it was installed. The owners also allowed me to show it at the guild meeting!
2016 is our last year of doing big tours by car. If you want us to come to your guild (or come BACK), please talk to your program person now so that we can fit you into our schedule. After this year, we'll still be available, but you'll have to fly us in.
John is still booking this year's tour everywhere in North America (including Alaska!) Let us know if you want us to come to you.
We have FINALLY done a performance in Arkansas (and was it ever fun!) That means we're only missing Mississippi in our tours!!! WE CAN'T RETIRE UNTIL WE'VE DONE MISSISSIPPI! Do you know any quilt guilds there? We need to sing for them!
May 10 Lexington KY Concert
During the summer we have a quick flight up to Alaska, and then we'll hit the road again in the fall to points east (they're ALL "points east" when you live in Victoria BC!)
