IHQ Going Global

Our 2019 Scholarship Quilt, “Heritage”, designed by Lynn Wilder, and pieced by members of the Independence Hall Quilters, is going to be featured in QuiltMania magazine in the Jan/Feb edition.   QuiltMania is a very “high end” quilt magazine printed in French, Dutch, and English, and is distributed worldwide. 

Lynn was able to borrow the quilt from the raffle winner, who happily lives locally.  She had to ship the quilt to France, so the magazine could do a photoshoot.  You can imagine how excited Lynn is about it all –  “I can’t wait to see what they do with it!”
Our entire guild is excited along with her. Many of us made blocks (under Lynn’s direction) for Heritage, so we have a part in the history of this beautiful creation. Yours truly made two of the intricate 56-piece blocks. That’s right, fifty-six little pieces – one block.
QuiltMania’s editor saw a photo of our Scholarship quilt on Lynn’s Etsy site and contacted her.  They wanted to feature the quilt and tell about our guild.  Lynn is putting together information about our guild and the quilt, at the magazine’s request.  Also, the guild will get compensation for featuring our quilt – great news for the scholarship fund!
