These quilts were made in the North for wounded soldiers hospitalized right in New Bern. Lynn will share this history at 10am and again at 2pm. On Saturday, Pepper Cory, will discuss the “The Art of Real Scrap Quilting” at 10:00 am. What defines a scrap quilt today? Are there any boundaries when making a scrap quilt? Then at 2:00 pm Pepper will discuss “On the Trail/Drunkard’s Path”. The classic Drunkard’s Path quilt pattern has an interesting history; it comes to us from England and before that, ancient Rome! All lectures take place in the Berne rooms upstairs. We challenge all guild members, fellow quilters and community members to fill the convention center with their amazing quilted treasures highlighting the talent here in Eastern North Carolina. Let your artistry, your compassion, your struggle, your growth and your beauty shine as we come together as a community to host a beautiful quilt show and celebrate the resilience of our community.
