Quiltfolk’s mission is to seek out quilters wherever we go, and it seems to us that there are simply more quilters per capita in South Carolina. Everywhere we went on our trip, if there was one quilter, there were three, and we lost count of the number of shops we saw. Perhaps it’s that quilters like Cookie Washington, Ruth Hong, and Laurel Horton were so friendly. It was the love that was multiplied.
Regardless, South Carolina charmed us completely, and now it’s your turn to be delighted. In Issue 14, you’ll “paint the town” with new friends on the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail, you’ll peek into vaults of textile history, you’ll see how grand views of the Atlantic inspire more than patchwork, and you’ll meet a lean, mean longarming “machine”… who just started kindergarten.
If you’re a quilter who wants to have her boiled peanuts and eat them too, the Palmetto State has its hand up, waving for you to come on over and stay awhile.
