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.
