Sue-Ann Hansler of Farragut displays a baby quilt hand-made by her grandmother, Victoria Smith, in the 1940s during the two-day Farragut Quilt Show Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 18-19, in Farragut Community Center. “This quilt would have been made on her Singer Treadle sewing machine that would have been purchased from either the Sears & Roebuck catalogue or the Montgomery Ward catalogue,” Hansler shared during the show’s program. “She raised me until I was 6 years old. After that, I spent every summer with her until I flew the coop. ... She taught me the love of cooking and baking. ... Grandma always told me to walk my own path, whether popular or not. To this day, I follow that advice.”
Mary Beth Hallahan poses with her “3-D Tulip Wall Hanging” displayed during the two-day Farragut Quilt Show Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 18-19, in Farragut Community Center. It was one of Hallahan’s three works displayed among 52 at the show. She said this hanging was from a pattern, Tulip Fields No. 140, from Laura’s Sage Country Quilts. Hallahan’s other quilts selected were “French Roses” and “Japanese Cherry Blossoms,” the latter of which featured silk threads and Czech glass beads.
