Mountain Memories Quilt Show~A great way to spend the weekend!

**Another post with a warning**

**Lots of's a long one!**
Just finished unpacking & putting away all my goodies after a great quilt show in Crossville, TN.

The Cumberland County Piecemakers put on a great show & are the most gracious to the vendors. Not only was every single member sweet as molasses, and shopping with every vendor, but they provided us with breakfast & lunch and drinks throughout the show. True Southern Hospitality at its finest!
Here's a peek in my booth...hard to capture the grandure (ROFL) in one little picture!

Now, on to the quilts!!!!!!

This guild has a really neat way of awarding prizes. The whole show is viewer's choice. Each guest at the show gets a ballot with 6 categories plus the fellas get a separate ballot so they can also award "gentleman's choice". The balloting is all day Friday and Saturday until noon. Then they frantically tally & award the ribbons in a ceremony at 3pm. The show closes at 5, so it was really nice to see the added activity late in the day the last day. Since I brought my camera only the first day, I did not get pics with ribbons.

Here are some of the bed quilt beauties!

There were the most adorable wall hangings, large & small!

And Miniatures!

A couple bargello quilts that just put me in awe:

And I found Sunbonnets around every corner:

Do you ever make a quilt and think, "Wow, I did a good job on this one!" and then go to quilt shows and feel so, so insignificant? :) I do all the time. Some of the quilts just blow me away!!! It's good to be humbled though!
