Thousands of people are expected to visit Paducah, Kentucky from across the country and the world for this year’s National Quilt Show.
People streamed into the Shroeder Expo Center when the doors opened at nine o’clock Wednesday.
Show organizers presented the awards last night.
The entries for the awards ceremony came from more than 40 states, and fifteen different countries.
Contest categories included viewers choice — wall and handquilted — and best of show.
This year’s best of show winner is titled ‘Muttons Buttons and Pearls, oh my!’ by Janet Stone.
