The article focuses on Synod School's "Watercolor Quilting" class where artist in residence Susan Barnes provides the instruction and helps the quilting enthusiasts in her class find the right piece of cloth for the fabric picture created by the student. She began quilting in 2001 after she saw a quilt by a watercolor artist and thought of making a potholder. Barnes notes that each quilt tells a story and points to a quilt that addresses the theme for the 2012 Synod School.
