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.

Day Trip: Heart of Trenton Main Street Festival

 

Heart of Trenton LogoWho would get up at 5:00am to travel from Springfield, Tennessee to Trenton, Kentucky for a street festival? I would—and so would my 86-year-old mother!

That’s exactly what happened Saturday when the Heart of Trenton Main Street Festival took place. We arrived just after it began around 8:00am. At least, that was the announced time, but we were late! Hundreds of people were already parked along the long street of beautiful houses and shops that grace Trenton. Workers had been in place since 4:30am that morning and the fun was in high gear.

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.
