Promised Quilt Show Photos!

So I promised you some eye candy from the Mountain Quiltfest Show in Pigeon Forge, didn't I?
Warning!  This is a very picture-heavy post!!!

There were some absolutely GORGEOUS quilts in this show.  I'm sharing a few of my favorites.  It was a smaller show compared to some of the AQS and International shows, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to go again regularly :*)

I posted about this quilt - my favorite - in an earlier post HERE.

Circle of Curiosity by Anne B.G. Armour
You can click on the link to see more closeups and details of this wonderful quilt.

Here are the other photos I took, in no particular order.  I was a very bad girl in that I neglected to get the names of the quilters for most of them.  I hope you enjoy!

Talk about pineapples!!!  Wow!!!

Interesting quilting motif here....

I loved the scrappiness of this row quilt!  It was much brighter and very colorful :*)

Closeup details.....

Now this quilting took time!  But it was very effective.
I like how the quilter split some of the squares up diagonally.
(Sorry, no pictures of the actual quilt - apparently I just loved the quilting LOL)

Gorgeous quilting - and those birds in the corner are machine embroidered!

Paula Nadelstern's Caribbean Blues.  There was a special display of some of her quilts - YUM!!!
One of my classes was with Paula and I'll be sharing more about her later :*)

I have this one ear-marked to make one day from the AQS Magazine

I just LOVE mandalas!!!

My camera does not do this quilt justice!!!  It was simply GORGEOUS!!!!

The quilting on it was just as gorgeous!

Can you see the shape of the edge?  Just one more special touch :*D

Lots of couching with metallic threads :*)
Very visual impact - and this was in the Teen Quilt section!
Can you see the musical symbols quilted into the black area?

This looks like a fairly simple art quilt from a distance, but......

Move in a little closer and you begin to see all the details quilted into it!
Can you see the hummingbirds?

How about here?  This was absolutely beautifully quilted!

This quilt hung in the lobby of the Convention Center

The details were amazing!!!
All sorts of extra needlework details were lavished on this beauty!!!


This one is for all of us strip lovers!!!  It was ablaze with color... I loved it!!!

Botanical Fantasy by Lorilynn King

What can I say?  Words can't begin to describe this masterpiece!!!

These next ones are for my fellow cat lovers!!!
(You may notice that I never got a photo of the complete quilt - just the kitties LOL!!!)

And finally, I saw this lady standing in line next to me to have our scissors sharpened.  Her necklace just fascinated me, so I asked if I could take a picture to share with you all.  Isn't it FUN????

I hope you enjoyed the Show!
I still have to share the classes I took, as well as a few fun things I encountered during my travels,
so stay tuned =^..^=

Hugs & Blessings!


  1. OH MY GOODNESS! My heart has been beating double time since I started looking at the pictures. Only one word for these-Magnificent! These are truly beyond words. And the quilting! WOW! I would love to be able to quilt like that. Thank you for sharing.
    I really like the quilt close to the top. It looks kinda like a spider web-dresden plate.? Do you know the name of this pattern? I would love to make this quilt. Thanks again.

    1. Are you talking about the yellow/purple quilt at the top? If so, my mom designed & made it.

  2. I never tire of seeing all of the beauties people create! There are so many stunning quilts here--I won't start to name them individually or it might get too long--like my posts!
