In Following the Barn Quilt Trail, which will be released in Early May of 2016, Suzi Parron heads back out to the quilt trail, this time with her new love, Glen.
Traveling in a converted bus named Ruby
the two, along with Gracie the barn quilting pup, travel thirteen thousand miles, across the US and Canada, to visit the newest additions to the quilt trail.
The book is a blend of memoir of travel with a new companion, travelogue along rural America's roads, and of course the stories and photos that made the first book a favorite.
About Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement
In Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement Suzi Parron takes us to twenty-five states as well as Canada to visit the people and places through which this movement has flourished across America.
Suzi's journey began in Adams County, Ohio, where the quilt trail movement originated. After working with founder Donna Sue Groves, Suzi set out on her own voyage of discovery. She travelled across the country, sometimes alone, sometimes with her faithful barn-quilting pup, Gracie. Together they met dozens of barn owners, barn quilt artists, and committee members who shared their stories.
The tales of the trail are gathered into this book, published in 2012 by Ohio University Press. The book includes more than eighty full-color photographs; it has become a favorite of quilters, travelers, and other fans of Americana.
