Practical Patchwork

dedicated to quilt pioneer Marie D. Webster

Through its publications, Practical Patchwork exists to create a wider public awareness of the unique quilt designs and other achievements of Marie Webster, author, businesswoman and one of the early 20th century's most innovative and successful quilt designers.


Under the direction of her granddaughter, Rosalind Webster Perry, Practical Patchwork has published a new, edition of Marie Webster's pioneering 1915 book, Quilts, Their Story and How to Make Them, the first American book on quilting and quilt history.


We are also dedicated to publishing Marie Webster's collected quilt patterns.


Twelve of her most popular designs, complete with full instructions and color photographs, are featured in the first pattern book, entitled A Joy Forever. (Out of Print)


Rosalind Perry and Marty Frolli have just completed the second Marie Webster pattern book, entitled Marie Webster's Garden of Quilts. This new book features 14 additional classic Webster designs, most of them never before published.


All these books are available through the Practical Patchwork web site. Please go to our How to Order page. We now accept credit cards (Visa & Mastercard)
