Martha File of the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail in South Carolina invited me to join her in speaking about the quilt trails. Tomorrow will be my first presentation since the book's release!
Seneca, SC is in such a beautiful area, including a couple of lakes. We are kayakers, so heading up here a day early and hitting Lake Jocassee seemed the only sensible thing to do.
On the way to the lake, we passed this great quilt block--a pair of them, actually. I am not sure which I enjoyed more--seeing this quilt or hearing my sweetheart ask, "Isn't that a Crazy Quilt?" He also correctly idenitified Grandmother's Flower Garden a bit farther down the road.
Martha had posted a photo of this quilt block on my Facebook page; knowing that we would see it at the lake added to the anticipation.
as if the wonderful painting and almost impossibly blue sky weren't enough, just a few steps past the quilt square, this spectacular view is revealed.
The lake was far more beautiful than I imagined. Unfortunately, the 35 mph winds that were forecast materialized, and well--whitecaps on a lake aren't my cup of tea. We have plans to return, though, and will bring some kayaking friends!
