The 28th Annual AQS Quilt Show was opened today with the largest AQS Quilt Show Flash Mob. The Paducah Tilghman High School Drum Corps led the way as the Quilters on Parade showed off their quilts.
Nearly 400 quilters gathered at the Food Tent just before 9 a.m., and when a few rain drops made an appearance, Show Director Bonnie Browning called the Drum Corps into action. The entire group marched into the Paducah Expo Center, turned right inside the exhibit hall and marched around the perimeter of the room before exiting.
Vendors grabbed their cameras, and some started a cheer: P – A – D – U – C – A – H… what’s it spell? PADUCAH!
But the Drum Corps wasn’t finished yet – they stopped in the street and entertained the quilters who were outside waiting to enter the show. What a fun way to kick off the 28th Annual AQS Quilt Show!
Thank you to Band Director Patrick Saddler and the Paducah Tilghman High School Drum Corps, Quilt Man and Bobbin Boy, and to all of the quilters who made this the best AQS Quilt Show Flash Mob to date!
