Quilt Artists of Kentucky


The Quilt Artists of Kentucky was formed in 2003 as an auxiliary of the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society. Membership in QAK is limited to current or new members of the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society. Membership dues to join the Quilt Artists of Kentucky are $5 per year in addition to KHQS membership dues.


The group’s purpose is to serve as a support and information group for those interested in innovative quilt-making techniques and the quilt as an art form; to provide exhibition opportunities; and to provide education to the general public about the art of the quilt.

The Quilt Artists of Kentucky currently have two annual events:


The QAK annual meeting takes place during the KHQS Getaway, usually held in June each year.  Often there is an afternoon of demonstrations followed by a brief meeting to discuss the quilt challenge for the upcoming year and any business that might arise.


The Annual QAK quilt show entitled “Quilts with A Kick” – Contemporary Quilts by the Quilt Artists of Kentucky is held in Berea, Kentucky as an integral part of the “Quilt Extravaganza.”  The exhibit takes place in the Berea Arts Council building in Old Town Berea, 139 North Broadway, Suite B.  For more information, go to
