Good Morning!  Did anyone have a chance to check out the Quilt Trail in western North Carolina?  I know we are all art quilters and probably not ensconced in our studios making traditional quilts, but, it's hard to ignore the beauty of these barns with their beautiful quilt block decoration. The countryside is beautiful and driving around to find the barns is quite an adventure.  Anyway, I thought I'd share a few more of my favorite photos with you.  Hope you enjoy them.

I know it's getting close to Christmas and everyone is busy this time of year.  If you have some great gift idea that you would like to share with members of our region, we'd love to hear about it.
Thanks everyone!  
Oh, and don't forget that soon it will be time to submit your entries for the upcoming Southern Accents show.  Entry information can be found on the SAQA web site.


  1. Thank you Eileen for posting about the quilt trail. I did not know about it. When my house sells and I finally get to move to NC it will be a nice adventure for me.

  2. Just when I was thinking that no one is even reading the blog, I received your nice comment about the NC Quilt Trail. Thanks! I hope your house sells soon and you will be able to explore the NC countryside and discover the wonderful quilt barns.
