AQS Quilt Show Continues to Grow
Quilters continued to arrive in Paducah as the AQS Quilt Show & Contest entered the third day. Crowds seemed even larger today than during the past two days.
But then again, I have only been to the show in the afternoons since it has been a regular work week for me as well.
This morning dawned a beautiful day and the McCracken County Public Library garden captured this glorious view including a V.I.P. Charter tour bus. Quilters from Florida took time out from the show to take advantage of the library’s free internet and wireless access.
This afternoon many visitors took advantage of the final day for the AQS Collector Books backroom book sale. Deep discounts on discontinued titles as well as “hurt” books with minor wear and tear were still available to a flurry of hands that are more accustomed to making slow and painstaking quilt stitches.

The AQS Book Fair, a new program this year, featured many favorite authors published by Collector Books. Paducah’s own Ro Morse participated with her new book, 100 Things to Enjoy in Historic Paducah, recently featured in Mary Thorsby‘s ilist Paducah blog. (photo below)
Also featured at the Book Fair was quilter/author Judy Laquidara better known to her fans as Judy L. I will tell you more tomorrow about how fun it was meeting her today but in the meantime you can see more photos at Paducah Quilts and Quilters on flickr.
