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
An antique basket top, partly hand and machine pieced, got lots of raves. Note how the blocks are set so there is not an up or down. Clever woman of long ago.
What a bevy of Bring and Brag at our monthly meeting at Beginnings Quilt Shop! Let me also correct the December Tea Time in that it is Deb, from Travelers Rest, who made the denim doggie bed. She stars in our first “show off” for December in the beginning of her calendar wall hangings.
Many thanks go to Sam Baldwin who has been my graphic artist for my new book over many years. Jackie, his wife, requested a dark green and burgundy quilt so I just had to make The Real Trip Around the World in her colors. It turned out great and I trust they stay warm.
Come on down to the Hendersonville Curb Market, Saturday to buy my new book. Will sign and will have a few of the quilts there from the book. My favorite place in town. You can even get eggs, jams and other goodies.
I can’t let 2018 pass without a “shout out” for the Christmas PTA party. Show and Tell is the best as Kate shows off her Batik accomplishments.
Our Playhouse Garden group starts off the season with a great brunch at Mary’s house. I covet this lovely little tree wall hanging. Just makes one want to start thread sketching at the BERNINA.
The rustic hanger adds more to the charm.
