Rimer shares quilts with Chestuee Chapter


The Chestuee Chapter, welcomed Teresa Rimer, former Cherokee District director, to share with her quilts. 
Rimer brought a treasure trove of quilts she made to demonstrate her vast knowledge of quilting and the differing types and styles.  Included in her personal favorites were quilts she was working on and had completed. These included Cathedral Window, Wave, and a  Sampler quilt. 
She recently completed a "Quilt of Valor" in red, white, and blue for a veteran and displayed that as well.  Printed samples of the differing styles were circulated among those in attendance.

Several members brought quilts from their families storage to share and showcase.  Included in these were a Tennessee Vols quilt, Texas star, Fan quilt, Rose vine, Rabbit applique, a Civil War weaving, Amish-style quilt, as well as an antique handmade doll from the 1900 time frame.  

The Chestuee Chapter began by welcoming new members, and prospective new members, distributing the first yearbook and new member's packet.    

The next meeting will be Saturday, Oct. 5, at 12:30 p.m. at the Kinser Church Family Center on Waterlevel Highway.
