The Real Trip Around the World at JC Camplbell Folk School

A class picture, November, 2010, at the quilt grows. Yes, it is a 3 or maybe 4 bobbin quilt of stitching. 


Our Appalachian music star of the class, Jeni, who traded music for fabric while touring England this summer. Every piece holds a memory and a story.


Our quilt backs become fiber art with those twirling, flat intersections. Tedious, but well worth it!


Somewhere over the rainbow lies a finished quilt top!


Carol and Geni laboring away, stitch by stitch and row by row.


How great is this to have a design wall and a whole table for every student as you get to watch the quilt grow. 


A typical sunny fall day with those gleaming red roofs. So much to learn and so little time.

Well, I just about cried when I read this Georgia. I don't know when I've been called an Appalachian star before! Thank you. Because of you, I have truly realized the importance of ironing in the life of the quilter. So this photo of me is a perfect confirmation of that! I used to have the worst phobia of irons, but I have just had to let that go because there is no way to get those adorable twirls without one. I had so much fun showing my Mom how to do the twirls. Thanks for encouraging me to go ahead with my fabric collecting project. It all really worked out and brought me tremendous joy throughout the year as did the anticipation of being part of your class!
