PROMOTING THE ART OF QUILTING IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA LOWCOUNTRY
March 2021 PQG Membership Meeting
March 18, 2021 Via Zoom
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Social Hour begins at 12:00
Program: Barn Quilts & Barn Quilt Trails
Take 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.
The program is both informative and entertaining as we explore the way in which our quilting heritage takes on a new meaning as this movement continues to expand.
Speaker: Suzi Parron
Suzi Parron discovered barn quilts on a trip through Kentucky in 2008. She travels full time by RV, speaking to quilt guilds, libraries, civic organizations - whoever would like to hear more about barn quilts. She has documented over one thousand barn quilts in the process of writing her first book published in 2012 - "Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement". For her second book, released in May of 2016, "Following the Barn Quilt Trail", she left her job as a high school teacher and traveled by RV across the country, visiting farms from Georgia to California and even Canada.
