Scenes from the AQS - Paducah Annual Quilt Show & Contest . . .
From the "Rhapsody Quilts" Lecture by Ricky Tims
The Paducah Quilt Show of the American Quilter Society had four days
of beautiful weather and brought approximately 40,000 people to town
for the show. A local TV station reported the AQS show brings 18
million dollars to the Paducah regional economy. Below are some pics from the 2007 show. In later shows we had a mix of good and not so good weather, but always a good time [see my blogs for pics from the 2010 AQS Quilt show, 2011 Paducah Quilt Show, the 2013 AQS Show, and 2014 Paducah Show.]
Over (1500) fifteen hundred quilts were entered in 16 categories!
