Quiltmaker Spotlight: Carol & Stinson McCrosky

Two more quilt squares appeared Sunday as did one of the actors in The Quiltmaker, Steve Elderbrock.

Carol (who has been a very important part of moving this idea toward reality) says she chose the Judy’s Star block pattern because it shows off the fabrics. “Quilting was my life for twenty years,”  she explains. She is “still keeping a hand in it by making pot holders for Habitat for Humanity.” (Not sure if she meant that pun or not, but it’s a good one! (If there is such a thing as a good pun.))

She welcomes nice pieces of cotton for the potholders (to benefit Habitat for Humanity), so if any of you have some sitting around collecting dust, she’d be happy to take them off your hands!


Stinson made his own version of a Broadway Nights block pattern because he liked how the name associated with the theatre.

For more information about how you can contribute a square to the Parkway Playhouse Patchwork Quilt, click here. See more squares and read other Quiltmaker Spotlights: Dianne Griffith, Laura Nelson, and Linda Hensley.

Keep checking back for more information about the wonderful women of the Piece Makers Quilt Guild who just completed a two-day “sew-in” and their honorable Hero Quilt project. Also coming up: our first out-of-state block arrives! Plus information about how to get your raffle ticket.

And if you haven’t heard: Training Sessions for being an Usher and the annual Theatre Work Day are right around the corner.  Before you know it, the season will begin!
