Quilter's Hall of Fame

From QuiltIndex

Jump to: navigation, search

Fame honors those who have made outstanding contributions to the world of quilting. The QHF has a permanent home located in Marie Webster’s colonial revival house that she designed her famous quilts and operated a successful pattern business. The Marie Webster house is now the home of a unique museum and archives system documenting America’s quilt making heritage. The significance of the house was officially recognized in 1992 when it was designated a Landmark of Women’s History and National Park Service, the only one which honors a quilter!
