Mary's Technique of the Month Class

41 Blocks! This sampler has it all. 12 blocks form a pieced border around 29 sampler blocks in the center.  There are 14 different blocks (you make each block twice and choose your favorite block to make a third).  It is set on point and there are sashing and posts between each block. There is a small stop border and a larger border too.  This quilt is very traditional but Mary made it two very different colorways that really give the quiltmaker some choices here.  Pick your “look” and start sewing up this very fun sampler!

Mary Cowan of Mary's Cottage Quilts Biography

Mary Cowan began quilting about 26 years ago when her husband made a huge mistake and bought her a quilting book called Quilts, Quilts, Quilts.  Little did he know how profoundly that would affect her life; soon she was taking classes at a local quilt shop and was hooked. Her love for fabric, sewing and quilting, along with her quest for all the latest greatest patterns has evolved, over the years, into designing her own patterns.  

Her pattern company is called Mary’s Cottage Quilts and is named after a family owned cottage in upstate New York.    

Mary has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree specializing in graphic design from the Rochester Institute of Technology.  She is a big fan of combining simple blocks with beautiful fabrics in order to make quilts that look very complex but are easy to construct and show off the character of the fabrics used. She likes a wide range of different color schemes from the soft pastels to the Civil War reproductions to the vibrant fabric designs of Kaffe Fassett.     

“It is a great feeling to create a design that other quilters can get excited about and want to make for their family.  I feel that if I can get others excited to create, choose fabric, and putting something together that can be a family heirloom to them then I have succeeded in my goal.”
