A Quilted Life: Enid Baker

How do you capture your life journey? With a diary? Letters? Photographs? A list of books you’ve read? For some people, like artist Enid Baker, memories are made of quilts, and life is tracked in threads on a sewing machine.

Join Enid as she pulls quilts from her travellin’ trunk, and shares moments along her life’s road.  Journey with her through a montage of quilted artwork. Find out what quilts stretched her creative talent, made her think, helped her grow, and made her laugh!

Enid is pictured at left teaching a young quilter the art. Below is “Janet Retires”, a quilted hanging entered in the “Quilts and Beyond” Show, April 2011.
