Quilter Carol Shay

Pattern: Pinwheel Adaptations

I started quilting seriously about a year ago. It is a great deal of fun and a bit of frustration. I’m looking forward to exploring different techniques and new challenges.

Alice is also a Parkway Playhouse Junior Grandparent. Three of her grandchildren (Derek, Jeremy, and Rebecca Heidenfelder) have appeared in numerous Parkway productions. (So has her daughter, Allyson, and son-in-law, Lanny.) In fact, Jeremy will be performing in the upcoming production of Annie, Jr.

I have been quilting for only about 2 years and love it. I love the log cabin block and that is why I chose it. I enjoy making the different blocks and see what I come up with later.

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.
