NBD Quilts Knoxville Dogwood Arts Festival

Congratulations to our artistic colleague and mentor (and aunt), Nellie Bass Durand, whose fiber art has once again placed highly in the Knoxville Dogwood Arts Festival Art Show.

Her work was on display at the TVA building in Knoxville, Tennessee. The quilt show was well attended with between 150-425 visitors per day from April 14th to the 21st.

There were 153 entries from 16 states as well as from England, Norway, and Holland. There are multiple web pages, so be sure to click on the photos or "next" to see them all: CLICK HERE.
