A quilt tattoo

Kakie Urch, an old friend and former co-worker from my days at the Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader, is now an assistant professor for new media in the School of Journalism and Telecommunications at the University of Kentucky. Yesterday, she posted on Facebook about a young woman she saw sporting this tattoo.

She wrote: “Amy Robertson, incoming first-year student in Journalism at the University of Kentucky, is from Paducah, ‘Quilt City, USA’ Ky. The tattoo, she says, honors her hometown, along with her mother and her grandmother, who are both quilters. Robertson is not a quilter herself right now, but she plans to be one, she said at New Student Orientation on Tuesday Aug. 25, 2009 in the Classroom Building on UK's Lexington campus.”
