Joan Murphy

Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

Date July 2017


I met Joan at a quilt retreat in Vermont at the Strong House Inn in Vergennes, VT.  She was very nice, kind, and helpful.  Then, one night, she had a crisis with her quilt when she put it on the design board.  I came down a little while into the crisis.  She couldn't decide if she liked it, what she wanted to do.  I can't quite explain, but it was an important moment.  I watched someone struggle in front of others.  And she came through.  Most recently, she posted beautiful pictures of the finished quilt.  I think we all feel that way about quilts -- a crisis point.  Hers was at a retreat.  And later, we became Facebook friends. She is now part of our Quilting Army.
