***We are back in person at the library!!

Virtual Barn Quilt Trail!

Are you ready for some virtual travel? Suzy Parron will be our guest this month, joining us via Zoom to talk about quilt trails and barn quilts. No, not quilt blocks of barns! Barn quilts are large paintings of quilt blocks hung on barns and other buildings.

Suzy has been traveling the country–from the East Coast to California– following quilt trails. She has written two books on the subject. Her presentation features over one hundred photographs of barn quilts, some of which rival cloth quilts in their intricacy. The presentation includes 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.
