Second Guild in May

Then off to the Asheville Quilt Guild meeting. They alternate their meetings between evening and daytime at the Folk Art Center on the Parkway. Such a lovely facility to meet and greet quilters.
I was so impressed by the Show and Tell of Joyce Fong. Another wonderful Log Cabin quilt with feather quilting done on her home machine. Very impressive.
Last stop of the week was our very own Western North Carolina Quilters Guild here in Hendersonville.
The guest speaker was Barbara Webster with a fine presentation of the Quilt Trails. Please plan on visiting the Burnsville area and take the drives into the country. You will get caught up in the history, beauty and color of all the blocks on barns. What I especially like is how the designs are based on traditional blocks yet the introduction of new lines tie into a business or a families story to make each design so distinctive. Oh and do not miss the coconut cream pie at the Bakery!
A nice presentation at our guild with a rising student, Samantha Sherlin from West Hendersonville Hight School who sought our a guild member, Bridge O'Mally to work with for her senior project. She is shown with her original quilt designed and made by herself. We certainly need all the young people interested in fiber art today. Congrats, Samantha.
