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.
Meredith takes us on a private tour of the head quarters of American Quilters Society. She also gives us a tour and shares the magic of Paducah, KY.
