PADUCAH, Ky. - This year's American Quilter's Society Annual Quilt Show in Paducah will open its doors at 9 a.m.

Quilt lovers are already preparing to rush the doors to see all the beautiful quilts on display at both the Paducah Civic Center and Carroll Convention Center.

This year's show will feature two special exhibits. One exhibit features 150 years worth of signature quilts that mark special events in history along with social causes. You can also see the Hoffman Challenge Exhibit. Every year quilters enter pieces for the challenge while using the same material. Both exhibits are at the Robert Cherry Center. Admission is $5, but you can go multiple times.

You can check out the show today through Saturday. The show runs from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. today through Friday and ends at 5 p.m. Saturday. Admission at the door for non-members is $14 per day or $25 for a two-day pass. A multi-day pass is also available for $35.
