Three quilting authorities will judge this elite group in Paducah, awarding first‐, second‐, and third‐place prizes in 16 categories, along with nine overall awards. Winners will be announced at the 33rd AQS Awards Presentation, which takes place at the Carson Four Rivers Center in Paducah at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25. Cash awards totaling $125,000 will be granted, including $20,000 for the Janome Best of Show; $12,000 for the BERNINA Stationary Machine Workmanship; $12,000 for the AQS Hand Workmanship; $12,000 for the APQS Movable Workmanship; and $5,000 for the Robert Kaufman Best Wall Quilt.

AQS Founder and President Meredith Schroeder says, “Extraordinary quilts are being made by today’s quilters, and the contest quilts represent an extensive variety of styles, sizes, and techniques. Each quilt in the show is an intricate, creative work of art to enjoy.” Quilts were entered in this international contest from 44 US states and 14 other countries.
