Biography

Barb Vedder

I have been quilting for more than 25 years with a special interest in antique and applique' quilts.  I have won many awards and have been exhibited in local, regional and national shows.  In 2016 The Vermont Quilt Festival awarded my Jubilee Quilt the Best Hand Quilting Award.   In 2012 I was awarded 1st place in Wall Quilts - Hand Quilted at the AQS show in Lancaster, PA.  I have exhibited work at Quilt Odyssey, Lancaster and Houston.  I am a three time finalist at the AQS Show in Paducah.    I have been published in Quilt magazines, newspapers and I write a weekly blog.

I enjoy all styles and types of quilting but my passion will always be studying and interpreting antique quilts and wondering about the women who created them.

I have two grown children and live in a country setting In Connecticut with my husband, cat Mr. Starbuck, and chocolate lab,  coco.
