Kimberly Einmo, AQS author and instructor, originally designed the Trail to Paducah pattern as a Mystery Quilt.  She was inspired by the inviting streets of Paducah, Ky., where residents and business owners open their doors—along with their hearts—to welcome the throngs of quilters who descend on the city each spring for the American Quilter’s Society QuiltWeek® event.

I would love the pattern to Trail to Paducah but I can’t find it.

Hi Terri, I’ll send you the PDF of the pattern to your email address. Sylvia Thomas, AQS Administrative Assistant


I’ve looked and cannot find the “tips” section mentioned in the pattern. Could you please direct me? Thanks.

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.
