January 4, 2018 – Marie Webster

Thanks to Angela and Marilou for the outstanding slide presentation on Marie Webster, an American quilt designer and historian, and author of the first book entirely devoted to American quilts, “Quilts: Their Story and How to Make Them”.  Marie Webster gained national attention when her quilts were featured in The Ladies’ Home Journal in 1911.  Two important style characteristics of her quilts were the use of solid color fabrics rather than prints and the use of pale colors.  Her style made her known at the time as a “modern” quilter.


Marilou has begun this daisy quilt based on Marie’s quilt pictured above.

These two Cuddle Care quilts will delight two children at the hospital.

Our next meeting will be a Cuddle Care round robin assembly of nine-patch quilt tops.
