On Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at noon the Swift Creek Quilters will be meeting at the Wolfe County Education Building in Campton. Last month Kim Graham and Mary McWhorter were there to show us how to make the log cabin block. Some of us have had a chance to try one and now we have more questions then ever! So Kim is coming back.
If you made some log cabin blocks, please bring them. If you did not and want to try you can on Tuesday. You can bring three light and three dark pieces of material or look through material we have there. Sewing machines will be set up or you can do it by hand. Kim is also going to show us some videos on quilting so we can learn how to find those kinds of resources on the internet.
If you don’t want to try a log cabin block, but just like quilting, please come too. Feel free to bring projects you have made or are working on. This is a gathering of folks who just like quilting. Everyone is welcomed; from experienced quilters to people who want to learn.
Be sure to stop by the Wolfe County Judicial Building and see the beautiful quilt that Betty Phipps Farrell made in honor of her sister Alice Phipps Davis. The quilt pattern is French Baskets and it is pieced and quilted by Betty. It is truly a work of art. It was donated to the Appalachian Heritage Alliance to be displayed in memory and honor of Alice. Alice taught many people to quilt while she and her husband Darrell worked with us when we ran the Hazel Green Academy Life Long Learning Center. It is a beautiful tribute to a wonderful woman.
