2014 Quilt Block Party Wraps Up!

House Front Spring 2014 with frame

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!  Please e-mail us at fieldspennhouse@gmail.com if you would like more information about the Abingdon Block Party or check out the official website!
