I have been spending a lot of time the past few months speaking to quilt guilds across Georgia. Along the way, I've had the chance to see quite a few quilt blocks that were new to me.
I had been to Powder Springs a while back when working on the book, but I missed this Basket on the side of one of the downtown buildings.
This sampler is a new addition--I love the garden setting!
Powder Springs began the first section of the Southern Quilt Trail, which has spread to several surrounding counties.
The town is also home to a terrific quilt shop--Kiwi Quilts. If you are in the area, stop by and see Tracey.
I got to Carrollton early for a speaking engagement and took a side trip down to Bowden. This sweet Tulip quilt was a bit hard to find, as it hides behind a building. But that was half the fun and worth the trouble.
When I got to Carrollton, I was treated to a visit to the new
Quilt and Textile Museum. They are off to a terrific start!
