Barb Vedder

Quilting has been my passion for over 30 years with a special interest in antique and appliqué quilts.  My quilts have been exhibited in regional, national and international shows including Houston Quilt Festival, AQS Paducah and Lancaster and Quilt Odyssey. I have displayed quilts at the Texas Museum and The New England Quilt Museum. The Vermont Quilt Festival has awarded me the Best Hand Quilting Award in 2016 and 2020. I have won Connecticut State Fair’s Best Appliqué Quilt twice. In 2019, two local Guild Shows awarded me Best in Show. I have been published in Quilt magazines and continue to blog at www.funwithbarbandmary.blogspot.com .

I enjoy all styles and traditions of quilting but my passion is studying and interpreting antique quilts and wondering about the women who created them.

I live in Connecticut with my husband, Rich and have two grown children. We share their home with Coco, a lazy chocolate lab and Nutmeg, a spicy calico cat.
