: Lois K. Ide (1920-2010) completed this quilt in 1988 and named it, World Peace. Perhaps her best-known piece; UNICEF used it for a greeting card in 1993. The pieced background of the quilt is based on a traditional Around the World pattern. The words Peace, World Peace, Peace on Earth, May Peace Prevail on Earth, and There will be World Peace are embroidered in 38 different languages. The globe she used is a homolographic one in which the size of the countries are kept in correct size proportionate to each other. The all-cotton quilt measures 165cm x 168cm (65 inches x 66 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.
