Paducah Quilt Show

I've just returned from the American Quilter's Society Show  in Paducah, Kentucky.  Everywhere I looked, there were quilts, quilters, fabric and food.  It is truly a party in Paducah.  I was on our guild's bus trip which left Indianapolis at 6:30 am Friday and returned at midnight Saturday night.  We saw a lot in that time.   I'd like to share just a bit of my trip with you over the next few days

I had a couple of objectives this trip besides wanting to see the quilt show and shop the vendors.  If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I love English paper piecing.  The bus stopped at the National Quilt Museum.  I have visited the museum a couple of times before, so some paper piecing addicts and I visited a few other shops around town.  The photo below is The Hexie House, home of paperpieces.com.  I knew they would have a booth at the quilt show, but I wanted to stop here.

Here are a few photos of the inside.


I think this is block 1 of the Millefiori Quilt Along.



Patchwork of the Crosses blocks and paper pieces.


Hexagon flower basket.


These were either 1/2" or 3/4" hexagons.  

Here's just one of the spinners of paper pieces available.



There are lots of ways to travel around Paducah.



We walked around town going in and out of different shops.



We made a stop at one of Eleanor Burns shops along the way.


This is across from the National Quilt Museum.  There are places like this selling fabric all over town.  


Here is the Primitive Gatherings booth in one of the places we stopped.




That's all for today.  I'll post more tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of my trip!
