Selected as “2001 Teacher of the Year” by The Professional Quilter Magazine, Paula Golden has been quilting since the early 1970’s and teaching for over twenty years. Paula is past-president of the Virginia Quilt Museum’s Board of Directors and co-author of the book, “Quilts of Virginia: Birth of America through the Eye of a Needle.” Her passion for the stories behind the quilts is a leading theme in her work. While the history of stitching is important as a documentation of issues of concerns and art, it is also a means of expressing joy and humor.
This collection is comprised of quilts created by Paula Golden as well as other artists that she has worked with over the years. It includes four chicken-themed pieces created by Patricia German, and sixteen quilted postcards that friends sent to Paula. The current collection will be on display until February 28; new pieces will be displayed from March 1 – 24.
“Using fiber as a creative means to communicate is intrinsic to my very being. It links me to the continuum of men and women who have stitched their lives in fiber to provide warmth and nourishment for the body and soul.” – Paula Golden
