I just got home from Pigeon Forge’s “Mountain Quiltfest”. I love this particular show and love teaching at this event. Next year they are planning their 20th anniversary at the new civic center. I’ll be teaching along with my buddy, Jo Morton! I’m not sure when they will choose classes or let you sign up for them, so check the website www.mypigeonforge.com later this year. Worth coming to East TN for this show and venue.
Of course, what is a quilt show without quilts! I managed to snap a few student photos from former class projects. I’m so proud of my students! A big fat thanks to all who brought in their quilts.
There are 5 rows of 11 blocks in this stunning quilt. Donna made an applecore quilt last year out of thirties fabrics that was also so stunning. Great work!
Sharon Francisco also took last year’s churn dash class and made this great sampler.
Bernadette Pohlmann did an extraordinary job on her “Mountain Blossoms” quilt.
I will end this blog with showing you my favorite quilt in the show made by my friend, Linda Roy. She won a blue ribbon for “Icing on the Cake”. Linda and I make all our quilts by hand and this particular quilt has everything you want to see in hand work. Linda’s work is known all over and we are lucky she lives in Knoxville.
Here is a close up view of one of the sections. BEAUTIFUL!
