Want Some Inspiration ?

  I find the work of Victoria Finlay Wolfe inspirational.  If you visit her blog here this week, she has a link to watch her recent episode on "The Quilt Show" for free.  You do have to sign up for a free account.

I love her quilts and hope you check out the show and her blog.

FELLOWSHIP HALL            Our February program will be "The Quilt Trail" presented by Suzi Parron.  

Suzi Parron, author of Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement, has spent the past year traveling the country speaking to quilt guilds and other groups about barn quilts and the many other painted quilts that make up the quilt trail.
Suzi will take you 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 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 presentation is both informative and entertaining, as Suzi explores the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning as this movement continues to expand.
Suzi will have books available for signing after her lecture.
