Sometimes a poor spouse or significant other is trailing along behind - consigned to that special chair in quilt shops reserved for their ilk - where they sit resigned to serve their sentence till the quilter is through exploring. This website aims to make that S.O. a happier camper by profiling scenic trips and destinations that offer lots of interesting things to do and see . . . that have nothing to do with quilting (but pssst, also offer some neat stops and shops to fill that quilting void!). See our Scenic Drives & Byways pages, currently featuring the Lake Superior Circle Tour, the Great River Road Scenic Drive and scenic drives through the Arkansas Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains.

We couldn't get away with talking about quilting and travel without including something about traveling to the North American Quilting Mecca - Paducah, Ky and the Annual Expo of the American Quilters Society. If you've never gone to Paducah these pages will give you a taste of what it is like. We'll also profile some other quilting shows that Jo and her friends have attended and found worthwhile.

Are quilters birds of a feather or is the "cult" made up of a wide variety and kinds of people? For fun, we're offering an opportunity to take a little quilters survey that includes a personality quiz patterned after the famous Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ®. By taking this questionnaire, you can help us answer the burning question: "Is there a quilting personality or not!"

If you need a hotel or motel while you are traveling our Quilted Highways, try our internet hotel motel booking service for attractive rates.

As this is a work-in-progress you'll find new things from time to time. Our Traveling Quilter Blog is one of them. This spring we are headed to some quilting shows in Texas and to spend some time touring the scenic Texas Hill Country area. Later of course we will be in Paducah. We also have a comments area on our blog and would love to hear from other quilters and their traveling companions.

Enjoy Your Visit
