Quilts of the Cumberland show, part of the Rivers and Spires festival in Clarksville, Tennessee. There was a car show outside and I asked Buddy if he wanted to stay there while I looked at the quilts, but no he wanted to see them too. He paid more attention that I did! He would say things like, 'look at all those pieces!' and 'that would look good made out of wood' (like these we have at home). He struck up a conversation with Rick McKee who was there demonstrating the huge Gammill quilting machine, he examined the construction of the barn quilt squares on display. 

Lots of local talent in this city as in every city we have visited. Quilts are part of the history around the country and kudos to all the quilters out there for keeping this history alive and passing on the skills to and talent and art to the next generation.
