Grand Rivers Quilt Show

The Grand Rivers Quilt Show is held each year during the third weekend of April, during the same time as the National Quilt Show in Paducah, Kentucky. The Grand Rivers Quilt Show will host it's 23rd show in 2020!

Quilters and visitors from all over the world come to the Grand Rivers Quilt Show. Visitors find this show unique because quilts are displayed in the open for close-up viewing. There are numerous vendors selling quilting materials, tools, and completed hand-made works of art inside and out. A Tulip Patterned quilt is raffled off each year. Quilters take part in the "Quilters Challenge", a quilted wall hanging challenge that is set the prior year. The challenge can be anything from only being able to use two colors of fabric to a specific theme like "My Old Kentucky Home". Each year is a new challenge for quilters and visitors are always amazed how these artist can creatively meet the guidelines of the challenge and still create masterpieces! 

Many of the quilts are crafted by Grand Rivers natives however, numerous new and antique quilts are displayed from quilters from all over the United States.

The donations from the Grand Rivers Quilt Show are used to fund a scholarship fund sponsored by the Grand Rivers Chamber of Commerce. Whether you are in the area for the National Quilt Show or just taking in the amazing Spring beauty of the lakes area during the third week of April, visiting the Grand Rivers Quilt Show is a must!
