Suzi Parron
Guild Program: The Barn Quilt Trail

Suzi travels full time by RV, speaking to quilt guilds, libraries, civic organizations--whoever would like to hear more about barn quilts! Her talk 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. The 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.
