A Joy Forever is a double treat: the story of Marie Webster and her designs, told by her granddaughter; and a book of patterns for 12 of her original quilts. Co-author Marty Frolli perfected the pattern pieces and wrote additonal instructions for assembling the quilts.... A must for applique lovers, and for all of us who were inspired by Marie Webster's beautiful quilts. -- The Quilting Quarterly, National Quilting Association
This book is a fascinating look at a famous designer. It's also destined to be a historical treasure...
Marie Webster's quilts took America by storm when they were first published in the Ladies' Home Journal. Webster then began a long and fruitful career in quilt design, based on the Arts and Crafts Movement's credo: "bold and simple." Her appliqu patterns were striking in their simplicity and realism. But they were most effective for one basic reason. Marie Webster was a quilter. Many designers from that era were not.
Webster's granddaughter, Rosalind Webster Perry, has selected 12 of her grandmother's patterns. They are published together for the first time, along with a biography studded with family photos in A Joy Forever. -- Quilter's Newsletter Magazine
