Book Signing Event!
Hey come and meet Suzi Parron, one of the originators of the barn quilt trails movement. She just launched her second book and will be in Canada for a book signing at our community on May 15th, 2016 . Event includes tour of Native Women’s Trail of Tears barn quilt trail and stories from the quilters.

Suzi Parron, in cooperation with Donna Sue Groves, documented the massive public art project known as the barn quilt trail in her 2012 book Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement. The first of these projects began in 2001, when Groves and community members created a series of twenty painted quilt squares in Adams County, Ohio. Since then, barn quilts have spread throughout forty-eight states and several Canadian provinces.
In Following the Barn Quilt Trail, Parron brings readers along as she, her new love, Glen, their dog Gracie, and their converted bus Ruby, leave the stationary life behind. Suzi and Glen follow the barn quilt trail through thirty states across thirteen thousand miles as Suzi collects the stories behind the brightly painted squares. With plentiful color photographs, this endearing hybrid of memoir and travelogue is for quilt lovers, Americana and folk art enthusiasts, or anyone up for a good story.
Suzi Parron is a quilter, a folk art collector, and an avid kayaker. A native of Florida, Suzi has no stationary home, traveling by RV with her husband, Glen, as she speaks to quilters and civic groups across the country.

PEC Barn Quilt Trails Update
Greetings from the Prince Edward County Barn Quilt Trails.
We have over 90 barn quilts installed, and many more to come. It was a whirlwind year establishing the trail and continues to be a dream come true! I thank our many hosts, volunteers, suppliers, students and the Ontario Barn Quilt Trails for their continued assistance and support in making this fabulous project a reality.
