Who knew? Feb. 19 2012
By A. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
Before I received one of Suzi's Barn Quilt calendars as a gift I had never even heard of barn quilts, let alone a barn quilt trail. I quickly became fascinated with the topic and was eagerly awaiting the publication of the book. I was thrilled when my signed copy arrived a couple of weeks ago, and have not been disappointed. The book is filled with beautiful color pictures, as I expected it would be. What was unexpected, however, was the warmth with which Suzi describes her encounters with the people involved, from the painters to the barn owners to the school children, in short, everyone she met in this wonderful project.

Keep up the good work, Suzi! When can we expect Volume II?

Barn Quilts Feb. 16 2012
By Dave Snow - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been waiting for a book like this for some time. I have been painting barn quilts for about 2 years and have been searching for a reference source devoted to the history of barn quilts and the personal stories of the barn quilt owners. This book does that! Suzi Parron, as a writer, has been able to mentally allow me to ride with her to each location in the course of her research. I have truly enjoyed the ride and have been energized to continue to create lasting memories for my patrons.

Suzi Parron has done a fabulous job in her book Barn Quilts!! The history behind each quilt, the pictures and the overall flow of the book are wonderful!! I found it well organized, the index was quite helpful and her personal stories add "the icing to the cake"!!

Great book Feb. 19 2012
By reedy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure what to expect but I've thoroughly enjoyed this book. It took me on a journey across America. The interesting stories and colorful photos made me feel as if I was right there. I'd heard about the barn quilts but had no idea there was so much behind them.

I've ordered a copy for my sister the quilter. I'm certain she's going to love it.

Quilts on Barns? Finally, a history! May 24 2012
By Margot - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Suzi Parron's new book clears up the mysteries about the wonderful, brightly-colored quilt squares that have appeared on rural buildings coast-to-coast. While bringing people into the country side on barn quilt tours, the brilliant decorations are a source of pride and identity for rural residents. We're just getting started painting them in mid-Missouri and it's great to have a record of what's gone before. This is a fun, well-written and researched book with lots of illustrations and will be a beloved addition to the libraries of quilters, barn lovers and art afficianados everywhere.
