In the mountains, quilts are family heirlooms, the keepers of stories, and the way local folks celebrate life’s key moments. They are an important part of our heritage. Now, you can learn that visual language and tell your own story. We’ll combine your creativity, together with my 50 years of experience as a craftsman, to create a six inch painted quilt square that tells your personal story to take home. You will also produce a duplicate square to leave with us. Our group square will become part of a larger “quilt” made by all of the visitors we’ve hosted up on the mountain. In a small way, we’re bringing together your global ideas and values into one piece, much the way original Appalachian quilters brought our mountain communities together. Our mountain home has epic views of the Black Mountain range and Celo Knob. We'll sip sweet iced tea or Sandra's lemonade in comfy chairs on the porch that overlook those spectacular mountains. The view is special in every season.
Quilts commonly reflect stories of heritage, shared values, and family ties - that's why I helped build the Quilt Trails of Western NC with my neighbors. Over the course of two years, we built and painted wood panels to mimic quilt patterns that reflect our community's story. Piece by piece, we tucked the squares throughout our county on old tobacco barns, next to rivers, and on cultural sites. Each square reminds us of who we are and invites travelers to connect to our community. Over the years, we've accepted awards highlighting community creativity and ingenuity.

My family has lived in the area since the 1700s and we built our home with many personal touches . It overlooks one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world with epic wraparound porches and comfy chairs. The view says,"remote" but we are only a mile from the town square.
