    I'm leaving out tonight. I'll be there Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 30,000 quilters are expected so I hope I get to see a few red ribbons! Ha.

    Hi! I wore my red ribbon, but did not see anyone from the QBF. Wow! Wasn't it a show? I was there on Wed. & Thursday. The crowds had thinned out at the convention center on Wed. afternoon, so it was room to meander through the aisles. I bought three patterns--two for handbags and one for an unusual apron. Then I bought some quilt backing at the tent and about 14 one yard lengths at Hancock's of Paducha for various projects. I love the fabric at Hancock's. The quality is superb but pricey. The Eleanor Burns show was so funny and entertaining. I would like to plan to stay in Paducah next year overnight and sign up for a workshop. They are expensive, but I guess the presenters have a lot of expense.

    I know where Hardin is. We bypassed it as we traveled into Paducah. We are in northwest Middle Tennessee. We took 641 to the Parkway and then to I-24 West.

    BREAKING NEWS 2011 PADUCAH QUILT SHOW
    Show Continues Despite Flooding

    by Bonnie Browning, Executive Show Chair, 270-556-2133

    April 25, 2011, Paducah, Ky., - Due to high water along the lower Ohio River at Paducah, the floodgates that protect the city are being installed. To protect the safety of visitors to the American Quilter's Society annual Quilt Show & Contest, events usually held at the Paducah-McCracken County Expo and Julian C. Carroll Convention Center have been moved.

    Best of Show, category winners, and bed quilts will be on display at the Pavilion at the corner of 4th Street and Executive Boulevard. Vendors that were in the Expo Center will be there, too.

    At Kentucky Oaks Mall, 3470 James Sanders Boulevard, The Alliance for American Quilts display will be at Circuit City. The Pilgrim/Roy 2012 Challenge display and AQS Lancaster 2011 winners will be at Office Max, also at the mall. Vendors that were in the convention center will be located at Circuit City. Vendors that were in the Pavilion will be at Office Max.

    All classes and lectures and All Star Review will be held at First Baptist Church, 2890 Broadway, where the Wall Quilt contest and winners will be displayed.

    The Food Tent will relocate just two blocks to the Farmers Market located behind the museum at the T-intersection of 2nd Street and Monroe.

    As always, there will be Vendors on Kentucky at 200 Kentucky Avenue, also known as the Finkel Building, and the Hurt Book Sale.

    Events planned for Carson Four Rivers Center and The National Quilt Museum will continue in place. The Yo Yo ladies, Live Auction, and Silent Auction will be at The National Quilt Museum.

    Shuttles will run between all venues so visiting quilters may travel safely.

    A little water can't stop the 2011 AQS Quilt Show in Paducah. Come see us!
