Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Shelly Zegart guest
Guest - If you have been listening to my shows or have been to my presentations, you know I am passionate about quilts and antique quilts are my inspiration. I've been a huge fan of Shelly Zegart for years.  Shelly is a renowned quilt collector, curator, author and lecturer on both antique and contemporary quilts. Her love of American quilts began in the mid-1970s when she was inspired to hang quilts with other art on the walls of her newly built contemporary home. Today I have we have the pleasure of getting to know Shelly and learn about her background and current project "Quilts Matter"
