Event Details

The first American Quilter’s Society show was held in Paducah in 1985. This special exhibit from our collection features over 30 of the AQS Paducah “Best of Show” winning quilts since this show began.

For many years, the top prizes in the Spring Paducah show considered are “purchase awards”… where the winning quilters only receive the prize money if their quilts are donated to the National Quilt Museum.

In 2018, the top six prizes were:
• Janome America Best of Show, $20,000
• AQS Best Hand Workmanship $12,000
• BERNINA of America Best Stationary Machine Workmanship $12,000
