Crazy for Quilts cont

The Crazy for Quilts exhibit I talked about the other day was truly impressive. Here are more images along with a fun place to eat if you're in Asheville.
Crazy for Pink by Joan Kinffen - great imagery inside each block. The buttons were a nice touch.

24 Elements of a Homestead by Patricia Ann Hobbs used crazy quilting to embellish the rays in the borders.
Ode to Tamar was made by Alison Ann Aller. The hand stitching was beautiful.

Whoooo's There by Christie Eckardt features a very non-traditional and fun border.
After the exhibit it was off to the Early Girl Eatery on Wall Street in Asheville. It's one of my favorite places. The decor is simple and the food different and delicious!
Menus are displayed on blackboards at each end of the room.
We are always a hungry group (clockwise - Cathy, Linda, Jodie, Georgia, Mary and Judy)!
And when you leave, you'll find a huge iron at the end of the street.
A great day!

  1. I used to know the history of the flat iron but forgot it. Now I'll have to go and find it again!
