Story of one of the quilt walkers.

I had a wonderful time at the Quilt Walk Festival!  It was nice to spend time with my friend Sandy.  Since she has moved to Arizona, we haven't been able to get together very often.  My classes went well.  I was totally floored when a quilt as you go class that requires a zig-zag machine has half the students bringing featherweights!  I was able to alter the pattern for them so that they all were able to have a successful project.  The Jazzy class was fun!  Not many students, but we had a good time and they got a lot accomplished.

I somehow only took photos of the vintage quilts in the show. That happens.  There were a lot of nice quilts. 

On Saturday morning we stopped at the Quilt Walk Park.  It was well done.  It had been dedicated last year.  The path had quilt patterns stamped into it, there was a bench to honor each member of the Quilt Walkers. And carved into the bench was the life story of that man.  All in all a fun trip!


  1. Love the park. Such an interesting story. It's wonderful that they still commemorate it!

  2. It was fun to see you at the festival and great classes.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you think about my post!
