Quilter Sharon Wilson

Pattern: Flower Basket

I am a volunteer at Fabrics in the Fray Quilt Shop. I have been quilting all of my life and I love flowers. I wanted to contribute to this quilt.

The other three blocks (and two that were shown before) are by Bobbie Nelson

Pattern: Paper Pieced, Dutch Girl, & Leftover Pieces

Each block I made was great fun. My favorite was the paper pieced block because I used lots of fun stitches I have on my machine. I made 5 blocks because I really wanted to see there be enough blocks. This was teriffic fun. Thanks!

It has been so much fun to see these pieces trickling in! I oooh and ahhh over all of them. If you, too, want there to be enough blocks to make a big quilt be sure to get yours in by April 8. We’d love to include them and your story! For details on the project, click here.

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.
