Our theme this year was Where We Live. We are located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Southwestern Virginia. The New River one of the oldest rivers in the world and one of the few that flow north, runs through our county. An old railroad bed has been transformed into the The New River Trail State Park. It is 57.7 miles. There is also a 5.5-mile spur from Fries Junction on the main trail to Fries. When we opened our shop in 1982 there was still a muslin mill at Fries.
The New River Trail Quilt
The New River Trail Quilt is 81" x 93". It fits nicely on a Double bed, goes almost to the floor on a Twin, or is a great comforter on a Queen bed. The picture above shows the quilt on a Double Bed. It is a high bed - note the step stool.
