2018 AQS Fall Paducah Quilt Show - Part 1

Time for a 4-part eye candy series of posts!  These pictures are from the 2018 AQS Fall Paducah Quilt Show a couple of weeks ago in Kentucky.  

If you have experienced the Spring Padacah Show and hated the crowds, this is the Paducah show for you!  The show and Hancock's Fabrics were not crowded and I got a room at the last minute.


The following quilt won the major award for 4th best overall.

This one won 3rd best overall in the show.

The next beauty was Best of Show.

Wasn't that fun?  I have 3 more posts of show pictures to show you.

Off to a retreat...YAHOO!

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)
