And the Executive Inn Continues to Tumble Down

The demolition crew is making good progress in knocking down the Executive Inn. I stopped on Friday evening and snapped a couple of photos. It is getting harder to get everything from the convention center to the far end of the hotel in one photo. I went across the street this time to try to give you some perspective on the progress.

From this photo you can see what's left of the restaurant end of the hotel on the left. The restaurants and shops section are gone, and so is the lobby section of the hotel. When you see that big hole now, you realize how long this hotel was... and they aren't quite done yet.

This photo will give you some perspective on what is left of the hotel. The white building on the left is part of the Pavilion, and the street in the center is the main entrance to the hotel. All that is left now is the swimming pool section.

By the time you arrive for the Paducah AQS Quilt Show, this will be a bare lot; we'll have some additional parking on the grounds this year. We are working on the parking entrance and shuttle bus routes now and will post a map on our website as soon as it is finished.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Paducah -- have you registered yet? Classes are filling, so don't delay in getting your registration to us.  Don't miss seeing the movie "Stitched"; Quilter's Fun Night; the Evening with Charlotte Angotti; the National Quilt Museum's annual quilt auction; or the Ricky Tims Concert, Quilts & More.

You can register for Paducah online here, or call 270-898-7903 and ask for Quilt Show Registration.
