Did you guess the TQS Quilt Legend for 2018? Was the hint about Iowa enough of a hint? Well wonder no more. The TQS Quilt Legend is... Marianne Fons!

Fons and Porter early, early book got me started. And now years later it is my passion after I had time to devote to it. Thank you for the excellent ground work in traditional quilting.
