AQS Show in Paducah – What a Trip!

AQS Show Entrance

This is the entrance to the AQS Show. I hope I win that car!

I’m on my way home from Paducah now, after a fabulous time at the AQS show. Paducah is like Mecca to quillters, we all want to go to this fabulous show at least once. It has all the wonderful home town flavor of a state fair in the lovely state of Kentucky! My classes and students were just incredible fun! AQS treated the teachers royally – I feel like a princess. Here’s some highlights I want to share with you:

The Sweatshop

A typical scene in the Garber/Paducah sweatshop! Ladies hard at work – oh did we have fun!

Color and Contrast
These are the first round exercises by my students in the Color and Contrast Class. The creativity of my students always impresses me.

At dinner last night at Flamingo Row, in Paducah, with old friends and new – Cindy Hagen, Dina Garland, and Bonnie Morton. Yours truly is second from left, of course. This was a fun restaurant. Can’t you tell just by the decor?

I’ll post some more about this wonderful trip later this week and show you some of the amazing prize winning quilts.
