GenFriends Genealogy Chat Show: Genealogy Quilts with Pat and Mary!


The panel, Melissa Barker, Bernice Bennett, Dan Earl,  Larua Hedgecock, Mary Kircher Roddy, and I welcome Pat Richley-Erickson aka DearMYRTLE to talk about genealogy quilting this week.  Mary who is a fabulous quilter herself does double duty as a panelist and a guest!

Quilting is a wonderful way to capture events, family stories, and connections and as Pat and Mary confirm, it is very therapeutic as well.

Watch as both Pat and Mary share some of the beautiful quilts they have made and the stories behind them, plus learn how to get started, groups that support quilters, and get advice from Melissa on how to make sure you store and take care of your quilts properly.

Bernice shows us a gorgeous quilt made by her mother that contains fabrics that spark memories and Laura shares a Christmas quilt made by her sister and a couple of quilts she is trying to discover their origin. 

Are you a quilter or do you have heirloom quilts?

We'd love to hear about them!
