: Lois K. Ide (1920-2010) made this jacket in the 1980s from a commercial pattern called Blooming Eight Patch. Lois’ chose fabrics of red, yellow, green and blue printed floral calicos and plain colors and embellished the piece with small blue beaded flowers. She added pockets inside so that she wouldn't need to carry a purse. 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.
