Show 1113 - TQS Quilting Legend 2012

Featuring: Meredith Schroeder

Posts On: December 17, 2012


We always look forward to revealing the TQS Quilting Legend of the Year, and we've never been happier than to announce our selection for 2012: co-founder and president of the American Quilter's Society, Meredith Schroeder. We begin with a tour of the National Quilt Museum, founded by Meredith and husband Bill over 20 years ago in Paducah, KY, to honor and showcase the work of quilters in a dedicated museum setting. Next, we visit the offices of the American Quilter's Society, where a busy staff of 45 produces quilt magazines, assorted quilt-related books, and four annual quilt shows. Finally, we drop in at the Schroeder home, where—among other things—Meredith reveals the only quilt she's ever made…as part of an ugly quilt challenge! It's the perfect wind-up to another terrific TQS series.

Wonderful show, and a great big thank you to Meredith. What a gal! Lovely story of AQS and Paducah and the Quilt Museum. Great choice for Legend of the Year.

God bless Meredith! You and your husband have made an indelible mark on an industry and so many lives. I am sure your family (both private and public) will hold you in their hearts and prayers,

The outtakes of Meredith and Bill were sweet and funny. God bless Meredith, may her family and quilting friends continue to fill her with joy now that the love of her is gone.
