Staff at the Fields-Penn House were excited to participate in the 2014 Abingdon Quilt Block Party! The Fields-Penn House hosted over thirty quilts. Quilt patterns featured included nine-patch quilts, Jacob’s Ladder, Trip Around the World, and Wedding Ring quilts. We were also honored to display several “barn quilt squares” from the Southwest Virginia 4-H Center. The beautiful 2 x 2 blocks denoted the Fields-Penn House as a participating location of the Quilt Block Party and are a unique way for the 4-H Center to raise funds for their programs.
If you missed the festivities, never fear…we have a beautiful photo slideshow of the quilts on display for you to see. We’re already thinking about what to do next year, and we would love to hear your suggestions!
