All of the over 200 quilts to be displayed were created by Village Quilters members. The queen size Signature Quilt, "Tennessee Jewel," pictured above, would be a perfect addition to any home. The main body of work on display will be voted upon by our visitors to determine the Viewers' Choice Awards.
In addition to the Signature Quilt, the guild has been generously gifted with a hand pieced quilt from local quilt artist (and guild member) Cindy Blackberg, of Walland, TN. Cindy is a hand quilter of extraordinary skill and her exquisite work, “Honeycomb Stars,” which was published in American Patchwork and Quilting, will be one of the items in the show’s Silent Auction – another great reason to attend.
