Quilter L.J. Nelson

Patterns:  (Red Framed Blocks Trip-Tic) “Something in Red”

The three red framed blocks were the same block made three different ways. So I named it “Something in Red.” Lots of fun.

Pattern: Double Wrench

I’m a retired grandmother. I have quilted some over the years, but in retirement, I have quilted in earnest. I love the process of cutting fabric into little bitty pieces and putting it back together in a new design.

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.
