Default PBS Documentary "Why Quilts Matter"

First let me apologize if this topic has been discussed already, I tried to do a search before
starting this post.


Last year in 2019 I recorded a documentary on PBS called "Why Quilts Matter" a 9 episode
series.
Fast forward to this past weekend (first weekend of March 2020) I finally decided to watch
the program. I'm only on episode 4 now, but am enjoying watching it and plan to keep this
for future viewing.

Has anyone else watching this documentary?

Share some of your thoughts and highlights of what you had about this.

I haven't watched it. I missed recording it probably when my ankle was broken, but I'd like to see it.

Wow! I just looked and it appears the Why Quilts Matter is on youtube. I'm going to have to watch it

I really want to watch that one! I saw the exhibit of Gee's Bend quilts when it was here and I have the big coffee table book about Gee's Bend quilts. It's an amazing story.

I watched some episodes today and I found it very interesting.
Have you heard about Dominique Ehrmann - A Walk Into Her Quilts. Absolutely amazing what this lady is making.

I haven't watched any more episodes since I watched the Gees Bend last week.
My Tivo has not been playing nice with me and any of my recordings.

This was a great series. I watched it when it first came out. Thanks for reminding me about it. I'm going to watch it again and turn off the news for a few hours.
