Have you heard of the Quilters Friendship Force? It is a great opportunity to travel and immerse oneself in the local quilt scene. They came to North Carolina from all over-even England to engage and explore all we have to offer. With a morning spent at QuiltBuilt I gave several demonstrations and joined them for a delicious lunch. Yes, food is always a part of quilting. They all donated a mountain block which was put into a quilt (below) , quilted at Sheridan Carter's Longarm Shop and then given to charity.
