Mountain Quiltfest 2012

This was my 5th year to attend Mountain Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge, TN. There were several Possum Town Quilters who attended this time. My first class was "Feathered Stars" by Nancy Mahoney. I finished my star since I've been home and am debating on how I want to incorporate it into a quilt. I've got some ideas floating around.

The next class I took was a two-day class taught by Annie Smith on "How to Choose Your Fabrics. I think I learned a thing or two. Still assembling my blocks but eventually I'll have a quilt put together.

This is Annie and me. Next is my friend Brenda who also took the class. We had a great time at Quiltfest and already have our reservations for next year.

I won a ribbon!!

Mountain Quiltfest was in Pigeon Forge in March. I had shown you my entry on my last post. Well, I won a ribbon!! Excellence in Hand Workmanship. I was (and still am) very surprised, shocked and excited!! I bought the challenge packet for next year and already have ideas swimming in my head. Dates for next year are Mar 13-16.
