It’s that time of year again… time for the Quilters to take over Paducah! That’s right, it’s QuiltWeek™ in Paducah, KY, a time when the city comes alive with creativity… when thousands of quilters and educators will arrive, all because the AQS Quilt Show & Contest is in town. Carloads of quilting buddies will be motoring across Kentucky, stopping at quilt shops along the way. Residents will share their homes with return visitors and tourists will swarm, sampling the local food and shopping the quaint downtown shops. The National Quilt Museum will be filled with folks eager to see top winners from past years. Caryl Bryer Fallert’s Studio, The Bryer Patch, will be lit up with visitors. BBQ and lemonade will be served under tents on the grounds while golf carts and buses transport giddy quilters from one event to the next. It’s truly a magical week for the quilting community, one not to be missed!

Festivies kick off tonight with the awards dinner and we can’t wait to get a peek at some of this year’s winning quilts. You can see a list of the semi-finalists right here. Legacy™ by Pellon®’s sponsored category is Small Quilts, Handquilted. Good luck to all involved!!
Legacy™ by Pellon® can be found in the main Convention Center at booth 1204. Our batting expert extraordinaire, Darlene Christopherson, will be there to answer all of your questions. Looking to drive home with some rolls of batting? Legacy™ by Pellon® will have 48″ boards, 30 yard rolls, 96″ boards (who wouldn’t want to own ‘the whole 9 yards’??) and more.
