Jess Bailey is an art historian, a collector of stories, and a quilter. You may know Jess from Instagram @publiclibraryquilts or their book, Many Hands Make a Quilt: Short Histories of Radical Quilting.

The conversation we had was tender and joyful as we discussed:

① why representation and visibility are so important in the quilting community,

② the power of a gifted quilts, and

how to start a quilting practice even if you come from a long a line of quilters.
