This exhibition celebrates the legacy of Marie Daugherty Webster (1859-1956), who is considered one of the leading designers in the history of early 20th-century quilt making. Born and raised in Indiana, Webster designed and made her first applique quilt in 1909. In the following years, her quilts were featured in Ladies Home Journal, which brought her international fame and recognition. The exhibition consists of 25 applique quilts designed and made by Marie Webster, which date from 1909-1930, 13 patterns, and original pages from Ladies Home Journal. Marie Daugherty Webster's scrapbook will also be displayed.
