Blog Hop Schedule

Abandoned silos at the side of a major highway
--  just east of Memphis, Tennessee

Welcome!

The SSOBB Blog Hop is a 12-week series
focused on the SSOBB Charter Members.

The Hop is intended to give each of them
a chance to share their stories --

whether it involves the making of their Gallery quilts,

sharing their perspective on being part of
 the Secret Society of Barn Builders,

or sharing new free pieced work they're stitching --

the blog hop is all about recognizing their contributions to
BUILD A BARN and The Free Pieced Barn Project.


* * *

The Free Pieced Barn Project
began in 2012 with the creation of See Rock City.

It continued with a book proposal
and a publishing offer from AQS that became
BUILD A BARN: No Pattern Construction.

BUILD A BARN includes
an external gallery of
sixteen incredible free pieced barn quilts
created by the Charter Members of the
Secret Society of Barn Builders (aka the SSOBB).

The gallery quilts are showcased here the book's blog -
just look for and visit the tabbed pages for each of the makers.

* * *

The Free Pieced Barn Project will continue this fall
with three public exhibitions of
the sixteen SSOBB gallery quilts!!!

They will be a Special Exhibit at AQS Chattanooga.
(September 14-15-16-17, 2016)

They will also be a Special Exhibit at AQS Des Moines.
(October  5-6-7-8, 2016)

They will also be at the annual
Davies Manor Quilt and Fiber Arts Show in Memphis, Tennessee.
(November 4-5-6, 2016)

Links and more event details for each of these events
will be shared just as soon as they are available.
