Nothing is more rewarding to give a red, white and blue quilt to a deserving veteran. So many stories behind these shoulders that then get to carry their own quilt. I made one for Gary, with the sunglasses, and was so glad to share.
A weekend away left me in awe of the ceiling at the Palmer House. Lots of geometric ideas there!
It was very exciting to make and donate my all floral Real Trip Around the World quilt as an opportunity item for the fund raiser in June. The money goes toward the Bird Sanctuary in downtown Flat Rock. A great place to stroll in the shade. Naturally I had to make some garden hats for the presenters.
My excuse is just a busy summer in the garden, on the road and my BERNINA. The Landrum Quilt show was in June with an abundance of pretty quilts which I will now feature. It was special to sell and sign books for so many of my longtime quilt friends.
Twelve devoted students out in Brasstown, NC at the Folk School worked very hard to complete their quilts and wall hangings last week. So proud of their diligence. Teacher selected a challenging project from the new Scrap Happy Quilts book, page pages 122 and beyond.
Great viewing and fun to be had at the semi-annual Landrum Quilt Show. I will be there on Friday from 12-3pm and Saturday the 14th from 12-2pm. Come see the quilts, vendors and all the guild members decked out in aquaT shirts. It is at the Middle Grade School building and will be well marked. Address: 104 Redland Road, Landrum, SC 29356
