November 3, 1996 | CHRISTOPHER REYNOLDS, TIMES TRAVEL WRITER
You have an open day on the Big Island. You've already seen the lava spilling from Mauna Loa, you've had your fill of the fancy hotels of the Kona and Kohala coast, you've prowled the tidy ranch town of Waimea and the weather-beaten grid of Hilo. So you bear north on Hawaii highways 19 and 240, and soon you stand at a startling overlook, staring down 900 feet at jungle treetops, a black-sand beach, free-roaming horses, a few scattered rusty metal roofs, a couple of 1,000-foot waterfalls.

Kentucky Paducah, the home of the American Quilter's Society, becomes "Quilt City, USA" each spring during the National Quilt Show & Contest. The town's population of 30,000 swells to 60,000 during the show. This year's event, April 22 to 25, takes place at several sites and includes classes, lectures, fashion shows and exhibits of to-die-for quilts. Vendors offer supplies as well as finished quilts for sale. For more information, contact the American Quilter's Society, P.O.

The sleepy town of Hilo is glorious after an early morning rain. The sun shines on green lawns as the storefronts along Waianuenue Avenue begin opening their doors for another day of business. I head up the street past the place where my grandmother's family house stood for 90 years, to be replaced, in the 1950s, by a Dairy Queen. On Kaiulani Street I wait on one side of the old wooden bridge that connects segments of the river-laced town.
