But you won’t get to snuggle up in any of the quilts on display at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park this weekend as a part of the annual Sycamore Stitchers Quilt Show.

Visitors to the show vote for their favorites in nine categories covering a range of styles.

Show co-chair Jeanie Johnson said the quilt show faced some challenges this year, which resulted in fewer participants.
