Island Park also gets a quilt square

The second quilt square hanging — part of the Quilt Trail Project — will be held at Island Park in Bryson City at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 20. 

The double wedding ring design chosen by Tee Angel of Angel Cabins for her quilt square is one well known throughout the mountains of Western North Carolina. Tee chose not to place it at her place of business, but rather at Island Park where everyone can enjoy its charm while taking in the beauty and solitude of Island Park.

“ I just love Island Park — what a treasure to have in downtown Bryson City — and I wanted my quilt square to bring another element of beauty to the Island for all to enjoy,” said Angel.

The brightly-colored, wooden quilt block will join its sister square, “Appalachian Dream,” located at the Bryson City/Swain County Chamber of Commerce.

The next block is slated for the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad Depot and the Bryson Pride committee is putting together a quilt trail map and brochure that will be distributed at the Swain County Visitor Center and available online at Individuals interested in purchasing a quilt block for their property should contact Rota Krape at 828.421.0948.
