Barb and Russ Childers ("Bear Foot")

The Story Quilt

Curriculum: Cultural Connections, English/Language Arts, Music, Social Studies, Visual Art

The colorful Story Quilt of Barb and Russ Childers starts with a blank canvas which the audience fills in. Participants select each hand-sewn block to hear its story until suddenly a “quilt” appears! Songs, stories, dances, and games from Appalachian tradition reveal how quilt patterns carry history lessons, family stories, folkways, proverbs, and word play.
