The Quilt Alliance membership includes some of the most interesting people in the quilt world! This series introduces and documents the rich stories and talents of our members. In this episode, meet Connie Kincius Griner, a quiltmaker and retired OB/GYN living in Burlington, North Carolina.
We first documented Connie’s work at the International Quilt Festival in 2016. She recorded a Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! video with her quilt “View from the Microscope: Pickled Paramecium.” And at the 2017 QuiltCon in Savannah, Georgia, Connie recorded a second Go Tell It! in our booth about her quilt “Wrinkly, Irony.” . Connie is busy caring for her grandchildren at home these days with not much time for quilting, so she decided to draw from her collection (she’s quite prolific) for an outdoor quilt show. Since March 27 Connie has displayed a quilt (or two) outside her home each non-rainy day for neighbors and passersby to enjoy. She shared #35 on May 7. Follow her on Facebook and Instagram to see updates to the outdoor show and more of her work.
We hope you enjoy this virtual visit with Connie!
