It was my great pleasure to travel full-time by RV, speaking to quilt guilds, libraries, civic organizations–whoever would like to hear more about barn quilts–for ten years! But all great things must come to an end, and I am now calling Florida home and enjoying the retired life.
I will continue to offer lectures Via ZOOM, though. My slide show adapts perfectly to the Zoom platform and has been well-received by dozens of guilds. You might find that the chance of winter weather makes booking a guest speaker difficult. Or perhaps you have a month when you need just a lecture, whether because you have another activity scheduled or the budget just dictates a smaller expense. To fill those needs, I will continue to offer my lecture via Zoom in the coming years.
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 expand.
