Quilt Shows

Paducah Quilt Show 2010

I had one day to see the entire quilt show and visit various vendors.  It can be done – but was I tired at the end to the day.

What amazes me every year is the number of quilts from other countries and the variety of quilts from traditional to art quilts.  According  to the Quilt Show book they had quilts from 47 states and 12 countries totaling 588 quilts.  With the most quilts was Japan with 94.

New this year was the Pavilion (dome) constructed to replace space no long available due to the Executive Inn closure.

Here is what the inside looked like at a vendor booth. Notice all the space.

I was also interested enough in the deluxe port-a-pottys to take some pictures.  Sure not like ones I have used in the past.

A trip to the Paducah AQS Quilt Show isn’t complete until I have my delicious BBQ sandwich from Larry, Darrell & Darrell’s

Every year Paducah offers every type of transportation for the Quilters to get around town.  This year the guy taking riders on his bike cart anywhere in town they wanted to go for free was the the one that amazed me.  I did notice he had a tip jar on this bike – but that had to be work and no amount of tips would cover this tired legs at the end of the day.

Well gotta run, things to do. Did you attend the 2010 Show? What did you think? Let us know here.
