I'm pleased to share with you a sneak preview of what is sure to be an amazing work of art created by the Asheville Quilt Guild in honor of the Blue Ridge Parkway's 75th Anniversary. Several members of the Guild will be creating their own "square" which will be incorporated into a wall size quilt. All the images on the quilt will relate to the Parkway. Examples include flora and fauna of the area as well as some recognizable landmarks such as Mabry Mill, Linville Falls, and the Folk Art Center.

The quilt will be unveiled at the Southern Highland Craft Guild's Heritage Weekend in September and will be installed at the Folk Art Center for visitors to enjoy for years to come. Stay tuned for more updates on the quilt's construction and the many wonderful artists donating their time and talent to this fantastic project.
