“For 30 years, quilters from across the U.S. and around the world have shared their quilts in the AQS Quilt Contest to make Paducah, Kentucky, the home of the finest exhibit of quilts as fiber art,” said AQS Founder and President Meredith Schroeder. “Today’s quilters continue to push the boundaries through techniques used, exploration of materials, and letting their creativity soar.”
