Blue ribbons and lots of memories at Rivers and Spires’ Quilts of the Cumberland Show

 

Clarksville, TNRivers and Spires Festiveal 2012 - 10 yearsWhat do white gloves, fat quarters, a Civil War history lesson, blue ribbons and a tribute to an old friend all have in common? They are all part of this year’s Quilts of the Cumberland quilt show during Rivers and Spires here in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Madison Street United Methodist Church has hosted the Quilts of the Cumberland Quilt Show since its beginning four years ago.  The Quilt show itself is held in the Activities/gymnasium area behind the main Sanctuary with the entrance off Commerce Street.

This year there were nearly 70 quilts exhibited, including a tribute to Bea Goddard, a local master quilter who passed away just 3 weeks ago.  Bea’s family members were so gracious in lending some of her prize winning quilts as well as the quilt she was making for this year’s show, still in progress.  On exhibit are also Bea’s many ribbons and awards. Bea will be missed by many in the quilting community.

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.

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.
