Paducah Quilt Show; the beginning of day 2

Day 2 of my trip to the AQS Show in Paducah started with our bus ride from Marion, IL, back into Paducah.  Our first stop was at the part of the quilt show that was in a vacant Circuit City building and another store that had also been closed.  I was told that when the decision was made to move part of the quilts and vendors to these buildings that the walls inside these buildings were painted, carpets cleaned and electrical wiring added in order to be able to put the proper lighting on all of the quilts and vendor booths.

I think this was my favorite quilt at this first stop.  The applique' was beautiful, but the ribbon it was awarded was for the machine quilting. 
Every time I see this little quilt, it makes me laugh.  The title is Boys Night Out.
These two Baltimore quilts were beautiful.

Here's an Aunt Millie's Garden.  The background is lavender with a thin irregular stripe.  I liked this one a lot, too.
Another pretty applique'. All of the alternate blocks in the nine patches had appliqued circles.

More colorful quilts.

Here are a few of the wall hangings that were part of the Pilgrim/Roy Challenge exhibit.

I hope you are enjoying seeing some of the things that I saw at the Paducah Show.  There were so many beautiful quilts it would be hard to pick just one favorite. 

Next post we go into what everyone affectionately called The Big Marshmallow. 

Thanks for visiting!

I think the Pilgrim Roy Challenge was particularly good this year!

Wow...these are STUNNING! It must have been wonderful to see them in person. I would hate to be a judge at THIS show. Thanks for sharing the experience.

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
