Pattern: Crow’s Foot

I’ve been quilting for about 10 years. I chose this block because I thought it would be fun to make, and it was. I like quilting because it allows me to be creative and end up with something useful. Who doesn’t love a quilt?”

Thank you, Wendy! Be sure to come see her daughter Natalie in the Parkway Playhouse Junior production of Annie, Jr.

If you still haven’t finished your quilt block or turned it in, there’s still time! But don’t put it off any longer. Please have quilt squares for inclusion to Fabrics in the Fray or  Parkway Playhouse by April 9.

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
