WNC Theme Quilt

My completed version of the Asheville Cotton Company $5 Quilt Club pattern from 2011, designed by Robin Culbertson.

Starting from top left and moving across row, by row (with some interpretation of the word row needed) the blocks are:

• Tree
• Friendship Star
• Flying Geese
• Mountains and Railways
• Tree
• Contrary Wife
• Posie
• Indian Star
• Maple Leaf
• Native American Art
• Snail Trail (Virginia Reel)
• Shoofly
• Snowball
• Log Cabin
• 2 Bear Paws
• Little Red Barn
• Tree
• Stepping Stones (Jacob’s Ladder)
• Stream (Water)

Robin designed this quilt based around our Western North Carolina history, craft heritage, culture and natural beauty. Many of the blocks are based on traditional patterns which she arranged into a narrative picture. She also designed additional blocks for those in the $5 Quilt Club that wanted to make a larger size finished quilt.

The fabrics are all batiks and I used colored threads when quilting, adding details and textures along the way. The most visible examples, in this photo, are in the Indian Star, Little Red Barn and Snail Trail blocks.
