Georgia Bonesteel

For more than 30 years Georgia Bonesteel has been a leader in the quilt world. As the creator and host of Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel, produced with North Carolina Public Television (UNCTV), she has shared her enthusiasm and love of quilting on television since 1979. Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel continues to air on PBS stations throughout the country.

In 2005 Georgia partnered with her son, filmmaker Paul Bonesteel, to produce the documentary The Great American Quilt Revival. The film features many of today’s well known quilters, historians and collectors discussing their art and their role in the revolution of modern quilting. From early quilting innovator Marie Webster, to the work and influence of the Amish and African-American traditions, to the overwhelming response of quilts mourning the recent wars and 9/11 tragedies, The Great American Quilt Revival captures the story of this landmark movement.

Inducted into the Quiters Hall of Fame in 2003. Author of many quilting related books. Online gallery and quilt store at:
