Georgia Bonesteel

A longtime seamstress, Georgia moved to North Carolina in 1972, when she became interested in quilting. Her popular television series “Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel” led to her authoring several books on the subject. In 2005, Georgia partnered with her son, filmmaker Paul Bonesteel, to produce the documentaryThe Great American Quilt Revival. Currently, Georgia is active with the Hendersonville quilting community’s project Quilt Block Trails.
