Q is for Quilt is the result of a children’s book written by Gwen Marston rendering the alphabet through quilt patterns. Mary created the blocks in this quilt from traditional patterns with the exception of her original Cherry Wreath. Her collaborators, Gwen Marston and Joe Cunningham set the blocks together and quilted the piece. Kate Darnell provided the illustrations of the patterns. Revenue form Q is for Quilt helps to support the Michigan Quilt Project.
