So many of us are in “stay in place” right now that I thought sharing some photos from the quilt show in Paducah, KY during 2006 might give you some new ideas. Or at least some different quilts to look at.
I really try to make an annual trip of the show in Paducah each spring. There are just so many quilts to see, which means so many more ideas of quilts I would like to make.
These quilts caught my eye for one reason or another, which means the camera comes out. Besides the actual quilts on display, there are vendors from all over with a variety of patterns, supplies, fabrics, sewing and quilting machines, books, and a whole lot more. Plus classes from some famous quilt teachers and designers.
I have long since lost my handbook for the show so I can’t tell you any details about these quilts. But you can enjoy just looking at them, right?
I am always amazed at the creativity and skill of the quilts on display. So many are one-of-a-kind designs solely for the purpose of making a quilt to display in the Paducah show.

I left the photos large so you could see the detail of the quilts. After all, we are all about the details right.
The Quilt Show in Paducah, KY 2006 was not one quilt show, but shows within the main quilt show. There were smaller shows of themed quilts, or regional quilts (Japan comes to mind).
I will post the rest of the photos from this show for the next post.
In the meantime, have fun with your quilting. This current situation will pass and we will once again be able to travel and enjoy time with other quilters.

Please note that none of the quilts in this post are mine, but the photos are.
