Gathering of Quilters Guild titled their guild challenge Throw Me a Curve and Ide won first place. The pineapple blocks, a strip-pieced pattern built around a diagonal half-square center block, is worked in cotton fabrics of pink and green. Ide machine pieced, hand quilted and hand embroidered this little quilt that measures 74cm x 74cm (29 inches x 29 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.
