600 Quilts – and counting.

Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – On Thursday, April 15th, the Rivers and Spires Festival will be holding a Trunk show at the Madison Street United Methodist Church during the Quilts of the Cumberland event.

Who loves to cut up perfectly good fabric into many pieces, and then sew them together in a different order? Quilters do!

This will be demonstrated by Starr Howell, the guest host of Thursday night’s free program entitled “Our Quilts tell Stories”.

The 5:30pm trunk show will be held in the classroom adjoining the gymnasium of the Madison street United Methodist Church here in Clarksville.

Starr began her first of 600 quilts in 1978, and continues to quilt to this day with friends and as a member of the Music City Quilt Guild of Nashville.

A part of her inspiration comes from fellow quilters during the Guild’s “Show and Tell” sessions when members bring in both old “found” quilts and newly constructed treasures. Starr’s specialties include trying new techniques, combining machine piecing and machine appliqué, experimenting with new tools , and using many fabrics and small pieces in unusual combinations.

Like most quilters, she loves to see new fabrics and patterns.

Following the trunk show, the public is invited to get their first glimpse of the Prize Winners and Best of Show Winning quilts at the Quilts on the Cumberland quilt show in the gymnasium. You are reminded that food and drink are not allowed inside the gymnasium or in areas containing quilts.

Please join us in welcoming Starr Howell as this year’s guest speaker to our Rivers and Spires sponsored Quilts on the Cumberland Quilt show and celebration.
