This afternoon my husband and I went to Northport, AL (about an hour from Birmingham) to the Kentuck Festival of the Arts, a two day event showcasing folk and contemporary art, craft demonstrations, regional cuisine, and live music. I've always wanted to go and finally did! What a fun time we had!
It was a visual explosion of color and creativity. Though there were only a few quilters there, I came away inspired, with new ideas rattling around my brain all the way home. I learned one thing for sure...
I'm not the only one who collects bottle caps:
The West Alabama Quilters Guild had a booth. But instead of the generic white top on their tent, they had an elaborated quilted roof over their heads.
And I loved this sign. I agree wholeheartedly, even with the forgotten "N."
I thought it was so funny that the 'regional cuisine' was corn dogs, fried onion blossoms, funnel cakes, and freshly fried pork rinds! I wonder if people in the North really think we Southerners live on this sort of food? Though I have to admit, the smells wafting from the food area were pretty yummy.
