My Latest Book

Welcome to My Blog

Crazy Quilt (Mary Ghormley Quilt #190 International Quilt Study Center & Museum)

This is the beginning of the next chapter of my brilliant quilt career.

I was inducted into the Quilters Hall of Fame on July 17, 2009. I said at the time I would play and not worry about deadlines for a month and I did.

Now it's September 2, 2009 and I am starting a blog.

My very patient friend Barbara Brackman is here helping me set it up. Deb Rowden is also here cheering me on. What will I blog about? Hmmmm. I could simply share stories of the quilts that come my way in a serendipitous kind of way and entertain you all.

I'm sure I'll be sharing thoughts and photos of my favorite chintz medallion quilts, Sears Contest quilt stories, and doll quilts like the one above from my latest book Childhood Treasures: Doll Quilts Made By and For Children.

and here are a few more pictures from my doll quilt book.

  1. Congratulations on being inducted into the Quilter's Hall of Shame. It's well deserved! I have a few of your books, including the recent one on doll quilts, and I really love them. They are well-researched and inspiring, with lots of great pictures and history! Louise

  2. Soft Covers for Hard Times is one of my Favorite books. I'm somewhat new to quilting, and I was thrilled today to find your blog. Won't you please continue blogging? Would love to hear what you have to share.
