The National Quilt Museum, of Paducah Kentucky, has 20 NEW quilts on display inside the Missouri Quilt Museum! Each quarter we receive new quilts for exhibition. These quilts will have you 'soaring' with excitement!

Take a few steps down the red carpet of the gallery and you will stand in awe before entering the rest of the way to view these magnificent pieces of art! Absolutely breathtaking! The current exhibit features quilts of "Into the Wild: Creature Quilts".
We look forward to having you visit the museum and experience the greatness of artists from around the world!
In April of 2019, Dakota received a call from Frank Bennett, CEO of The National Quilt Museum. He wanted to chat about helping us along our journey in creating the Missouri Quilt Museum. After she picked her jaw up off the floor- a trip to Paducah was scheduled to meet and discuss.
The 5 hour journey from Hamilton to Paducah for our Board of Directors was spectacular. We had a lot of fun, but we could never have been prepared for what was next.
After a private back scenes tour of The National Quilt Museum we were invited into Franks office where we learned that he wanted to support our efforts in Hamilton. Frank and the staff have been a vital part of our growth and knowledge as we took on this endeavor.
