Quilters Hall of Fame

I've always wanted to go to the Marie Webster House which is now the Quilters Hall of Fame.   I  have been a fan of the old Kansas City Star patterns and re-creating them in modern or new fabrics.  Marie Webster wrote one of the first quilting books and published a pattern company.  Many of her patterns were published in the Kansas City Star newspaper.  So there my fascination began.

I'd also like to see the signature quilts of each of the inductees into the Quilter Hall of Fame.  It's just a piece of history that needs to be experienced.  If you are ever in or near Marion, IN, you should try to stop in and see the garden and exhibit currently being shown.  I can't wait to go.  I think that this is my year.
