Trail to Paducah Mystery Quilt Pattern


Kimberly Einmo, AQS author and instructor, originally designed the Trail to Paducah quilt pattern as a Mystery Quilt.  The inviting streets of Paducah, KY inspired Einmo. She loves how residents and business owners open their doors and hearts to welcome the throngs of quilters partaking in Paducah QuiltWeek. Trail to Paducah invites you to stitch yourself into our community of quilters.

I have known Kimberly since she was a member of Cypress Creek Quilt Guild. She is a lovely person and I have fond memories of her classes. I plan on making the Wall Quilt for my newly finished second sewing room to keep the memories flowing. Thanks again Kimberly for the pattern and we still talk about you. Just got your book for my daughters birthday.
