Virtual Quilt Show

Thank you for stopping in to see our Virtual Quilt Show. Many of us have been very busy during the COVID-19 pandemic and we are excited to share photos of our creations! Quilts are listed alphabetically by maker’s last name.

The Marie Webster Quilt Guild is named in honor of Marie Webster, a pioneering entrepreneur and author of the first book of quilt history. The mission of the guild is to support the mission of The Quilters Hall of Fame through financial contributions and volunteer hours. Click here to read more about The Marie Webster Quilt Guild.

Postcards from Vanuatu quilt. Very old UFO. Pictorial fabric is from a box of scraps Jean Chambers gave me probably 20 years ago and are pieces from a dress she had in the 60s or 70s. Paper pieced and quilted by me.

Debra Shepler

This quilt resided in Rosemary Shepler’s (Debra’s Mother-in-law) hope chest for many years. It was hand pieced in the 1930s by Rosemary’s mother, Ada West and her aunt, Josie. In 2019, Rosemary hired Deb Geyer to quilt the top and make the bias binding. Debra volunteered to sew down the binding. The quilt was gifted to Debra’s oldest daughter, Heather Winger.

Melody Smelser

Bali Wedding Star, a Judy Niemeyer paper pieced pattern. 92″ x 104″ Pieced and quilted by Melody Smelser in 2020.
