Quilters' Save Our Stories with Yvonne Porcella

Quilters Hall of Famer and TQS Legend Yvonne Porcella is next on our continuing series spotlighting the Quilt Alliance's Quilters' Save Our Stories (QSOS) program. In her interview, Yvonne speaks about the Quilt Alliance's 2003 raffle quilt, The Voice of You and Me"discusses quilting as an art form and the importance of visual storytelling within the art of quilting."


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!"


From Quilters' Save Our Stories and the Quilt Alliance:


"Karen Musgrave interviews Yvonne Porcella, a member of the Quilters Hall of Fame, about the 2003 Quilt Alliance's raffle quilt. Porcella describes her artistic contributions to the quilt's design and what they mean to her, personally. She also discusses quilting as an art form and the importance of visual storytelling within the art of quilting."
