A glimpse of the "twirls" from the backside. This is what happens when you run out of room on all of the walls. Thank heavens for the blue tape as it aided in supporting our sections as they were completed. Fun to see the reflection of the palm trees, too.

Cedar Key, Florida now has its own quilt shop: The Salty Needle owned and managed by Beth Davis with her side kick, Bunny, who is also the best assistant in class. We spent a couple of jam packed days touring the area and appreciating a new way of life on an island. Beth has a fine selection of fabric where she hopes to specialize in nautical/seashell fabrics. Another fine feature is the restaurant which is part of the same building--Fabric and Food, how good does it get?
The Ashe County Piecemakers Quilt Guild celebrated their 12th Annual Fair with all sorts of opportunities: Shoppes, Boutique; Bed Turning; Silent Auction: Awards. This guild has really grown since I visited them in 2003. What a beautiful drive; think rolling mountains, fields of Christmas trees and many blocks on barns. It was an honor to lecture twice and view beautiful quilts.
A winner of a quilt with many ribbons!
Note the happy quilters that are the welcoming crew for the guild. Let the fun begin!
