Our first speaker at the first meeting of the new guild year is Suzi Parron. Her interest in quilting history led her to a fascination with barn quilts, which she discovered on a cross-country camping trip in 2008. Suzi spent 2 years documenting the barn quilt movement. This study resulted in the book, “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement,” published in 2012; it was followed by “Following the Barn Quilt Trail,” published in April 2016. Read more about her at www.barnquiltinfo.com.
