Diane Allison-Stroud's Game Boards

Above, is a beautiful reproduction game board made by Diane Allison-Stroud. I've followed Diane's work for a number of years and it's been wonderful to see her honored first as a Country Living Artisan and then as an Early American Life Artisan. In addition to her richly colored reproductions, Diane has developed her own designs which have been influenced by the vintage boards as well as by the designs of the Gee's Bend quilters. Be sure to visit Diane's very interesting and inspiring blog where you'll find many photos of her work, studio, and the beautifully scenic area of the Appalachians where she has chosen to live.
