A Mountain of Quilts...
It must be getting close to spring, Quilt shows are popping up all around us.
A major show is about to commence in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It will be big and filled with wonderful quilts from all over the United States and then some. How magical to be in one spot filled to overflowing with inspiration and beauty. The town of Pigeon Forge is nestled in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee (and the home of Dollywood).
I cannot think of a more charming place to be inspired by nature and the art of quilting.
Here are the details...
