See the Best of the Best at the National Quilt Museum

Advancing an art form one quilt at a time.

Paducah is THE PLACE to visit if you are a quilt enthusiast. The National Quilt Museum calls this western Kentucky town home.

It’s the largest museum in the world solely devoted to quilts and fiber arts.

In fact, it was named as one of Kentucky’s best attractions earlier this year.

Bill and Meredith Schroeder started it back in 1991 as a way to celebrate the work of today’s quilter and honor quilting as an art form.

Since then it’s grown to become a destination for folks, with more than 110,000 people visiting per year.

Heartland Weekend’s Nichole Cartmell got a special tour. She says whether you are a quilter or not, if you enjoy arts this museum is a must see.

Here you’ll find a cross-section of some of the best of the best.

In the main gallery, you’ll find a rotating selection of various quilts.

In other parts of the museum, you can enjoy traveling exhibits.
