Author Suzi Parron: “I 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.”

I travel full time by RV, speaking to quilt guilds, libraries, civic organizations--whoever would like to hear more about barn quilts! My talk 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. 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 presentation is both informative and entertaining, as we explore the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning as this movement continues to grow. I also teach a fun half-day workshop during which each participant paints a small barn quilt. You can find out more about the workshop here
