Thursday was our day at the AQS Quilt Show and the opportunity to shop at every single vendor booth…400 in all! I think we hit every single one, too!
We were treated to a different view of Paducah on the way in because Johnny’s GPS sent him along the truck route into town. This was a construction site we passed, which someone cleverly dubbed the “Paducah Pyramids!”
Here’s a view of the dome pavilion added by AQS this year to replace the vendor/exhibit space formerly housed in the Executive Inn, which has been closed. This was an amazing structure, 37,000 square feet with special revolving doors to keep the air inside. You really couldn’t tell you weren’t in a traditional building unless you walked along the outside edge of the structure next to the wall.
Although I took loads of pictures of the show quilts, I can’t share them here on the blog due to permission requirements. The winners are posted on the AQS website. Suffice it to say, the quilts were amazing, making me very aware of just how inadequate my quilting skills are!
Waiting for our luxury coach to whisk us away to dinner…the end of a VERY long day…but we’re all still smiling!
Stay tuned…more to come!
