This was a busy meeting! We had our House Block Exchange, Raven Parris of Bella Quilts gave a presentation on Civil War quilts and then the ever spectacular Show & Tell!!
You can see the “exchangers” busy getting all their blocks in a row. Some challenge I might add.
The Civil War quilt presentation by Parris Raven who is an avid third-generation quilter who has worked in quilt shops in Virginia and Tennessee. Raven is a retired teacher, recently moved to the area with her husband, Hamilton native Larry Barnthouse, who traces his family tree back to some of Hamilton’s earliest settlers in the 1790s. Her shop, Bella Quilts, specializes in high-quality quilting fabrics, including a line of reproductions from the Civil War period
Last but not Least – the huge Show and Tell Presentation!!
