June: Member Potluck and Barn Quilts Speaker: Suzi Parron
Event Date and Time:
Home: on the road in her RV somewhere near YOU!
Author of “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement.” Suzi travels full time speaking to quilt guilds and other groups about barn quilts and the quilt trail movement.
Suzi will take you on a journey along the quilt trail, beginning with the very first barn quilt, which stemmed from Donna Sue Groves and her wish to honor her mother’s quilting art. Suzi’s hour-long presentation features over one hundred stunning photographs of barn quilts, some of which rival cloth quilts in their intricacy. You will hear stories of some of the individuals who have painted quilt blocks to honor loved ones or their local culture, along with a few humorous anecdotes.
The presentation is both informative and entertaining, as Suzi explores the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning as this movement continues to expand.
