Family Tree

Family Tree by Beulah Smiley

This week, all across America, families will gather to share food, fun and fellowship. Shown here is Beulah Smiley’s quilt called Family Tree.  Beulah made this quilt for the  Brown Sugar Stitcher’s 10th anniversary challenge and then exhibited it in the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival held at the South Fulton Arts Center.  It is a perfect quilt, however,  to honor this week of family gatherings.

Enjoy this week of festive food and family.

2011 Brown Sugar Stitchers President’s Quilt

Brown Sugar Stitchers' President's Quilt presented to Ann Smith, President, 2010-2011.

The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild has a ten-year tradition of presenting its outgoing president with a quilt. The presentation is usually made at the guild’s annual tea. This year’s outgoing president Ann Smith, who absolutely loves crazy quilts,  received the crazy quilt shown above to commemorate her service. Members of the guild contributed blocks and charms for the quilt.

Ann shared her quilt at the 2011 Atlanta Quilt Festival exhibit which was held at the South Fulton Arts Center August 1 -13, 2011. All who saw the quilt were amazed at the intricate workmanship in the quilt.
