MAY 18, 2017 Suzi Parron – Lecture
Suzi’s lecture “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement” will take us 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 presentation features over 100 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 block’s to honor loved ones or their local culture, along with a few humorous anecdotes. This informative and interesting presentation explores the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning as this movement continues to expand.
Suzi Parron’s lecture “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement” will be presented at our guild meeting on Wednesday May 18th at 7:15 pm.
