We have another TQS Quilt Legend sharing her story for this week's interview from the Quilt Alliance's Quilters' Save Our Stories (QSOS) program. In it, Georgia Bonesteel talks about her quilt, A Porsche Problem, "made for the "Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece" exhibit, inspired by her aging father, and her early quiltmaking years."
What are Quilters' Save Our Stories interviews you ask? "Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories (QSOS) is a project of the non-profit Quilt Alliance. The project creates, through recorded interviews, a broadly accessible body of information concerning quiltmaking, both present-day and in living memory. Our archive for the original audio recordings and photographs is the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. QSOS volunteers from across the country conduct and transcribe these interviews. We appreciate their generosity of time and dedication to the project!"
