Upper Cumberland Quilt Show Part I

This quilt was made by one of the ladies at the Algood Senior Citizen Center.  All the Sunbonnet Sue's were different and purple. The appliqué on the outside border added a nice touch.

This quilt had such an interesting story.  According to its owner, Joe Cameron he won the quilt at the U C Q F in 2014, he wanted to win a shotgun.  Nancy, his wife only had tickets for this quilt.  Joe says his wife is happy with the beautiful quilt, Joe says if he can sell the quilt he can get his shotgun.

The maker of this quilt called the design diamond ring--it was beautifully pieced and quilted.

Burgoyne Surrounded--I have been collecting fabrics to make this quilt

There was a nice display of patriotic quilts:  The addition of the elephant and donkey under Miss Liberty was a nice touch

Unusual color selection--the quilting was perfection.

There were dozens of quilts and I took many photos will share more in next post.


  1. I had to enlarge that Sunbonnet Sue quilt and study each cute little gal and what she was doing.

  2. The Sues are so beautifully made. I think I still have some of that sashing fabric in one of the totes.

  3. Beautiful quilts on display!
