Catching up on my blog posts going back to June.
After I spent a few days in Boone at the NCRA leadership Conference I traveled on to Gatlinburg to stay in my parents Blue Green vacation club.
It was a lovely place.
The drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains was beautiful.
The place was a lovely condo with wildlife every where.
Though I never did see that bear.
There was plenty of room for me to set up my sewing area. And even an empty chest to store my fabric.
I used the included ironing board and iron.
My goal was to make the Kauffman Solids challenge quilt.
I had a triptic board covered in felt to use as a design wall.
As you can see I had fun and accomplished my goal.
I also worked on the cancer quilt. I need to finish sewing on the borders and then quilt it.
There was a great Fabric Store on the Artists 8 mile loop.
It was a moda fabric lovers dream.
The store was in a small pedestrian mall.
She had a long arm studio in another storefront across the way.
Her husband helps her out.
When I was there he was cutting fat quarters.
She had lots of repros-40s and Civil War prints.
I really loved this quilt pattern.
She also had a lot of batiks.
This is the quilt she designed for the recent shop hop that unfortunately had already happened the weekend before.
It was a wonderfulfour days in Gatlingburg. Its a little commercial though more quaint then Pigeon Forge. It was just nice to get away from life and be ablt to sew without distraction.
