Barn Quilt Presentation by Suzi Parron Oct. 27th and 28th             

10:00am – 11:00am
Woodward County Event Center Cost: $5.00
Suzi Parron discovered barn quilts on a trip through Kentucky in 2008. She documented over one thousand barn quilts in the process of writing her 2012 book, “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement;” her second book, “Following the Barn Quilt Trail,” was published in May of 2016.

In her talk, Suzi will take us 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 hour-long 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 program 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 on hand for sale and signing.
