Really enjoyed the colors, the patterns, the "mountain music" playing in this outdoor event set among the historic clock-tower and lovely gardens. My first time enjoying this event and I plan to return yearly. Lots of nice gift shops, an art gallery, a historic museum, and small cafes nearby. Great event to visit as a tourist!

This event keeps the history of quilting alive. From small baby quilts to huge ones. The craftsmanship and colors make spring come alive. Quilts are hanging everywhere, on fences, in in front of stores, just about everywhere.

All kinds of homemade quilts to see. Beautiful patterns on them. Some you could buy for yourself or to give. Plenty to choose from. Also the musicians were a pleasure to listen to. A nice representation of the Appalachian culture.

Many beautiful quilts are on display. They are made by local artisans from many quilting groups. They are a representation of vintage patterns and uniquely designed modern patterns.

Quilt makers from all over come to display their quilts, patterns, techniques, etc. Beautiful display of color and art. Streets are lined with quilts hanging on lines. Mountain musicians are also on the street. Great display of Appalachian culture and art, which seems to be fading fast.
