Woo-hoo! I just found out that my appliqué quilt “Pink Petal Party” was juried into the American Quilter’s Society’s Paducah Quilt Show! The Paducah show will be held April 21-24, 2010 at the Paducah Expo Center, Julian Carroll Convention Center in Paducah, Kentucky.
The AQS Quilt Show & Contest at the Paducah show is considered to be one of the premier international quilting events. According to the AQS website, more than 37,000 people attend each year’s show, and more than $2.5 million in cash prizes have been awarded. Whether my quilt wins a prize or not, it is an honor just to be juried in, so I am really excited. This is the first time I have entered an AQS show.
