North Carolina loves their quilters…it’s no wonder that the fabulous Mary Ellen Kranz divides her time between Maine and NC.
While we were hiking in Asheville, we spent the afternoon at the beautiful Arboretum that snuggles up against the Blue Ridge Parkway. The grounds were beautiful and the hiking wonderful but my pleasure came from the fiber ties that the arboretum celebrated…there was an amazing applique quilt display by artist Judy Hayward. Unfortunately she’s a mystery woman to me…Googling brings up nothing and the staff in the building knew very little except that she’s living somewhere in North Carolina (or “was here for a while, sometime”).
Judy, you’re a rock star and if you see this post or if anyone knows about her…please tell her that we’re fans and would love to host her at Fiber College.
In the meantime, enjoy this little slide show of the quilts we enjoyed:
