They took the quilt off my bed

QuiltingTrenton, KY – On Saturday. June 27th, a quilting tradition was continued in Trenton, Kentucky. Quilts both old and new were offered for viewing during the huge annual yard sale and heritage day festivities.

Viewers were amazed to find quilts that were over 100 years old and ultra modern quilts in the same show. Samples of projects from this year’s Color Class, which was offered at Quilt and Sew at Golden threads, were proudly displayed, as well as beautiful traditional quilts which were loaned to the show by local residents.

Black Friday in Trenton

 

Black Friday SaleTrenton, KY – How do you avoid the hustle and bustle of Black Friday but still get some great bargains?  Try shopping in a small town in Kentucky.

There was only one shop open today in Trenton, but business was steady, and it does qualify as an independently owned small business; we were just a day early for Small Business Saturday, and we wanted to get some sale fabric –yes we REALLY did need more Christmas fabric. At least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Lots of Blue

 

Trenton Kentucky will hold its annual Heart of Trenton Celebration today, but there was much preparation that had to be done ahead of time in order to welcome several thousand visitors to that tiny town. This year I was invited to help with preparing the annual Quilt Show , which is held at the Golden Threads Drapery Shop on South Main Street.  Visitors will be delighted to see some old favorites as well as newly made quilts from the surrounding areas.  Trenton now has a new quilt shop named Quilt and Sew at Golden Threads, and the owner, Denise Shivers, is also the co-ordinator for the Quilt Show.

Guthrie KentuckyGuthrie, KY – As a part of its annual Heritage Days celebration, the town of Guthrie Kentucky staged a wonderful quilt show that was held at the Guthrie Senior Citizen Center; the show is always my favorite part of the Guthrie Heritage Days.  I have attended this show for several years and always discover and something or someone, that is new and interesting.

I was greeted when I arrived at the door by Helen Bellar who is the coordinator for the show.  She was delighted to show me a special exhibit by Doris Kelly’s Art III class from Todd Central High School. Students Cassie Hanners and Terese Rudder had created a quilt block which had won a First Prize and now resides in the Quilt Museum in Paducah. This is quite an accomplishment for high school students and is sure to be envied by many adult quilters.
