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!
