Virginia Avery was one of the true Ladies of Quilting. I know her work inspired me in my first quilting years; her pieces were the ones that were "different", and back in the 1980's when I started to get serious about quilting, "different" was hard to find. She has recently passed away, close to her 100th birthday, and to honor her, The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Timms is offering this tribute. Please realize that most of this video originally aired in 2007, when she was a mere 94 years old (by my calculations).
So pour a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and remember, or get to know, Virginia Avery.
