Memorable morning with Suzi as she visited with barn quilt enthusiasts and personalized
their copy of her new book, "Following The Barn Quilt Trail."
The Kansas Flint Hills Quilt Trail hosted the event
Saturday, September 10th at the Flint Hills Discovery Center.




Ron Wilson, Poet Lariat, opened the program
telling the story behind their barn quilt
and family heirloom quilt
at the Lazy T Ranch. He then recited
his poem, "Stalking the Elusive Barn Quilt"
Suzi has a special talent of finding the stories
behind the barn quilts, and putting those stories
in to words. Her program highlights her travels
across the country in search of those stories.









Stalking the Elusive Barn Quilt

In Honor of Suzi Parron
And the Flint Hills Barn Quilt Trail

By Ron Wilson, Poet Lariat

It’s not exactly hunting, in the sense of bow or gun,
But it does involve a search, and it is a lot of fun.
It’s a quest to find Barn Quilts at which you definitely want to look,
As told by Suzi Parron in her wonderful new book.
They're found on Barn Quilt Trails, now located across the nation,
As people seek them out as a tourist destination.
It starts with people choosing a nice quilt square design,
And painting them on panels in colors nice and fine.
Then those panels are hung on the side of barn or shed,
Where they’re available for viewing by the public, as I said.
And when there’s several in a region on a route that might entail,
It becomes what people now refer to as a Barn Quilt Trail.
It started in Ohio and the concept traveled west,
Where many quilts now stand as they await the traveler’s quest.
And it's not just the beauty of these eye-catching designs,
It's the back story of these families and the legacy they find.
So it's a wonderful experience in this quest to prevail,
As we learn heart-warming stories along the Flint Hills Barn Quilt Trail.
