I found the various applique quilts fascinating. The many themes were amazing. We quilters are so creative.

3 quilts

I have long since lost my handbook for the show so I can’t tell you anything about these quilts. However, you can enjoy looking at them.

Lots of room to showcase the quilting.

These quilts caught my eye for one reason or another. Besides the quilts on display, there are vendors from many places in the USA and beyond with patterns, supplies, fabrics, sewing and quilting machines, books, and more. Plus, classes from some famous quilt teachers and designers.

Imagination

I am amazed at the creativity and skill of the quilts at this show. Many are one-of-a-kind designs to display in the Paducah show.

This quilt show is not one show. It is the main show and many smaller shows and displays around town.

Amish influence.

Some helpful tips for this quilt show:

Stores in the downtown area have quilts in their windows. There are “quilt” signs and banners lining the streets. Paducah goes all out for this event.

Another cool scenery quilt.

Many old and empty buildings downtown the rest of the year suddenly have fabric and supplies in them.

Free parking is available downtown in public parking lots. I think utilizing those lots and walking around the area allows me to see many more quilts and vendors.

If you plan on staying overnight, make reservations way in advance. I reserve my room for the next year when I check out this year.

So creative.

I see tour buses all over as well for this event. If you do not live close enough to drive maybe coming as part of a tour group would be do-able.

I personally found one day to be not enough. And four days was too much. Through trial and error, I learned that I prefer 2 full days and one overnight. I try to make sure my overnight is the same night as the Ricky Tims’ concert.

look at all those small pieces.

Enjoy being an armchair quilt show traveler. However, maybe next year will be time to take a trip. For a quilter, Paducah is a fun adventure. Make plans now.
