Fall Catch Up, 2012

A busy quilt fall started in August with a grand celebration of the 30th anniversary of 
The Western North Carolina Quilt Guild, celebrating quilting and friendship. 
I was very proud to be the founding President and more proud to be here to witness it's growth.

 Then it was off to Springfield, Ohio to the Remembrance Quilt Guild. How best to get the ambiance of any guild than to view their Show and Tell.
 I taught my TriAxial weaving. It is such fun watching those 60 degree diamonds evolve from simple over and under weaving. Here Yana works on finishing, which she did!

What a pleasure to drive south on that country road, highway 68, to view many blocks on barns. It is not easy to get a picture, but a U turn and parking just off the road got me this shot. Yes, that is tobacco  
hanging below the hexagons. BTW, I am reading Barn Quilts by Suzi Parron. I highly recommend it for a stimulating explanation of this exciting growth.

It looks like you have been busy, always enjoyed watching your shows, but haven't seen any. Will you be doing any more new shows?
