The Cotton Quilt . . . . .

This Saturday, my friend and fellow vendor Martha, is having her first annual (hopefully it's annual) outdoor quilt show.

The show will be held at 4900 Troy Road, Granite Falls, North Carolina.  Granite Falls is off Hwy. 321 just above Hickory.  The show will be held from 10 am until 2 pm this Saturday, August 18th.  

Martha and her husband Jerry own The Cotton Quilt which is housed in her grandmother's sister's old farmhouse.  As you can see in the picture above, there is lots of room to hang quilts.  All the quilts hanging were made by Martha's students and customers since the shop opened years and years ago so there should be plenty to see. 

I have been to Martha's shop and I was just amazed at how much fabric a small house could hold.  Room after room of bolts and patterns and notions.  

So if you are anywhere in the Carolinas this weekend, take a trip up to the foothills and visit!

Blessings, Cathi

Oh, I wish I didn't have plans for Saturday. Will you be vending? If so maybe you could take some pictures.
