: Lois K. Ide (1920-2010) made this quilt, A Vase of Flowers, in 1988. Lois made this quilt for the annual Hoffman Textile Company quilt challenge. Lois chose to use the Hoffman fabric for the border while designing a vase of gladioli, tulips and tiger lilies for the center medallion. The vase is orange silk and all else is cotton. She used black glass beads to enhance the quilted dogwood blossoms in the border. The quilt measures 98 cm x 127 cm (38.5 inches x 50 inches). Lois was a native Ohioan and resident of Bucyrus, who began sewing at the early age of four. She learned appliqué and patchwork from her mother and embroidery from her aunt. After years of mastering her craft, she became a master quilter and an internationally known teacher with students worldwide. View on Ohio Memory.
