28th Annual Bank of Ripley Festival of Quilts

Every year my little town displays quilts at the Bank of Ripley. Have you ever heard of Ripley tomatoes? That’s us.

This year they had 82 (I believe that was the final count) on display. This is my third year entering my projects. I submitted four quilts this year:

  1. Turtally Awesome- Inspired by the Native American Star Quilt. I made this for a turtally awesome friend Wendi. Hand pieced EPP/machine quilted.
  2. Exploding Tardis in En Provence- 2016 Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. This was the first mystery quilt event I participated in. Machine pieced/hand quilted
  3. Holiday Star quilt- By Carol Doak. I have talked about this quilt all year. It was quite a challenge for me. Machine paper pieced/machine quilted
  4. Hocus Pocus – A Fandom in Stitches Quilt Along 2018 event. Machine paper pieced/machine quilted

The bank displays the quilts for a month and people from all around come by to view them.

I was super excited when I walked in today to pick up my quilts and one lone star quilt I purchased because it looked so lonely and needed a home. Then Melissa said “Jeanie you won something!”. Words can’t describe how excited I was. I have been on the top of the world and can’t stop smiling!


Wife, mom, grandma, gamer, and teacher. I've been quilting all my life.
