What a waste
Paducah KY is an old river town that fell upon dim days after World War 2, bypassed by modern commerce. It got a shot in the arm from a quilt show, the annual extravaganza of the American Quilter's Society that brings 40,000 people to town every spring, and the town has been properly grateful. Paducah now calls itself Quilt City USA and many businesses feature quilts in their decor.
Sometimes this is charming; sometimes it's not.
