Paducah Quilt show, 2015

Oh, what fun we had this past Wednesday.   We left at 7:30 am and got up to Paducah just before the doors opened at 9:00 am.  We got to see the Paducah High School drummers enter the building as the doors opened up for the first time.  Following them were the venders carring one of their quilts from their booth.   Then we got our first souvenir and entered ourselves.

SO many beautifel quilts.  Here are just
 a few of what we seen:

The stitching and imagination were 
just stunning:

It is hard to see in a picture, but these birds were plan blue pieces for feathers.  The stitching was magnificent,  that is what made the feathers!

And talk about thinking out of the box:

Check the quilt out in the picture above very careful.  Those are real pincher pins holding quilts on a cloths line.  And the one quilt on the left, yes it is the quilt itself!

Third place, it was so realistic!

Check out the picture above.  There was one individual that made this very unique quilt.   This is ONE quilt.  If you look at it from the right, you see Mother Teresa (above)

Same quilt...looking at it straight ahead (above) is Oprah Winfrey. 

Looking at that same Quilt from the left, (above) is Jackie Kennedy.

AMAZING, huh? And the boarder was brown...the stitching made it look like a frame around a picture.

The small wall hangings they had in back of glass.  I kept getting glare from all the lighting, so I could not get good pictures.

By the end of the day, we were soo tired, (and unfortunately didn't get to see it all). There was so much.  But we seen as much as we could.  We had soo much fun and am looking forward to going again next year.

I hope I did not bore you too much with all my pictures.  I actually took more, just tried to pick the best ones I had.  And I only took a fraction of the quilts there.  I just had to share with all of yous.

If you are ever near Kentucky the middle of April... or have the chance to to go to the Paducah Quilt show, I would highly recommend it.  You will not regret it.

Till next time,
