VIRGINIA BAKER and BARBARA SANDERS | Fall Paducah 2017 Instructors


Barbara Sanders and Virginia Baker are sisters, best friends, and next-door neighbors who are the authors of String Quilt Revival. They introduced the use of Sheer Delite as a foundation in the book. Together, they have developed 15 new quilt patterns since the book’s release in 2011. They’ve been teaching their fun technique and patterns since then in places like John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina and Mountain Quiltfest in Tennessee, as well as all over the South.

Barbara and Virginia have over 25 years of quilting experience combined. Virginia’s background is in color development for the paint industry, which gave her a keen eye for viewing color; Barbara was vice president of a bank for “way too many years.” They are now retired and enjoy sharing their quilting glee with others.
