Tobacco Road Juried into Judged Show-International Quilt Festival 2015

Connie Marie Fahrion's quilt, Tobacco Road (Fig. 1 and 2), can be seen at International Quilt Festival 2015, in Houston, Tx., October 28 - November 1, 2015.  The quilt was inspired by the book, Tobacco Road by Erskine Caldwell, although the quilt tells its own open-ended story and bears no resemblance to the actual book.  To read more about its creation, go to

I have been searching for a quilt that Connie was working on before her passing last July. It is a pineapple block that she had cut up and added sashing to. I have the borders and would love to have the quilt top in order to finish the quilt for the family. If anyone knows of its whereabouts, you can contact me at Thanks!
