Last Tuesday Tom and I attended the Town and Country Quilt Guild meeting in Joplin, MO where we both are members. We were treated to a trunk show of some amazing antique quilts spanning the 1850's through the 1950's. Donna Skvarla, from Norman, Oklahoma, is a certified AQS quilt appraiser and she has a wonderful collection of quilts. We not only were able to view the quilts, but Donna shared interesting facts and anecdotes about the quilts and the evolution of the art through the years.
What a treat. Some of the quilting was simply amazing. If you are looking for an interesting program for your guild, I highly recommend Donna!
