Autumn Day on the old Plantation

Standard

Sully Plantation in Northern Virginia holds an outdoor event on the remaining grounds of the historic house.

Quilts are displayed, vendors reunited and local guilds host. Children’s activies are available with an emphasis on living and quilting in the ‘olden days’. Tours are given through the historic 18th century home.
The show is held rain or shine so you know there were a lot of prayers for good weather. The weather was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the lovely day.
Late afternoon came and the families and quilters left for home. The staff and vendors packed up their tents and wares and drove away. The house became quiet again, the grounds bare, only the cars on the nearby highway to break the silence. For a few hours the laughter of children and oohs of adults brought the old grounds alive again.

I have over 35 years of quilting, teaching and sewing experience. I applied these skills to produce quilt patterns to encourge new quilters to express their creativity and technique with confidence. Experienced quilters will appreciate the quick, easy but versatile patterns. I hope you enjoy my view of the quilting world.
