​June Meeting

Suzi Parron, Barn Quilts

via Zoom

Suzi stumbled across my first

barn quilt in 2008; I immediately

looked  for a book with more

information on  barn quilts,

I found that none existed--so I

decided to write one!  Quilt trail founder Donna Sue Groves provided me with lots of contacts and background information, and I set out. After two years of weekends and my summers off while teaching, I finished the book, “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement.” The book follows the quilt trail as it expanded and tells the stories of those who have created barn quilts. Within two years, so many new quilt trails had merged that it was clear that another book was in order.  I set out again and traveled all of the way to California and back, visiting quilt trails.  “Following the Barn Quilt Trail” was released in May of 2016.
