I have been a patchworker for over 30 years, starting with hexagons and now designing my own work. I was asked to submit my quilt "Memories of Den Haag", shown in my picture at the Houston Quilt Show. I have been involved with the Guild over the years both at a Regional & National level. I was one of the project leaders of "A Gift of Quilts", the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Quilt project, for which I was made an honorary member of the Guild and also was awarded the BEM in the 2014 Queens Birthday Honours. A book of all the quilts donated was published by Traplet Publishing. My own book "Mary's Quilt Garden" was published by Schiffer in December 2013, 10 floral appliqu?© blocks, which can be made in 3 different designs. I love quick and easy quilts, particularly Pizzazz Quilts and teach the method in one day workshops.
