Smoky Mountain Quilt Guild Show Opening

The show opened today with the award ceremony this evening. There are 145 wonderful quilts in a great display space at Pellissippi State College on Hardin Valley Road. I'd like to present the Best In Show quilts.
"Fairy Dust" by Kelora Goethe, one of our guild members won Best of Show Bed Quilt. Some of you may have seen this quilt at Paducah.
It is completely hand- done. She even crocheted the embellishments. It is lovely, sophisticated sweetness."We're All the Same - Just Different" by Pat Kumicich of Naples Florida won Best In Show Wall Quilt.
It is machine pieced and hand-quilted. The shading with long straight quilting stitches is amazing on this piece
And then, I thought you may like to see me with my quilts.
The making of "Silk Roses" is written about here.
"Moon Dance" is written about here.
And "Across the River" is here. I'll be presenting more of the marvelous quilts in this show in the next few postings.

PS: All six of my postcards in the small quilt sale sold immediately.
