Rosie was one of the best known quilters in the Montgomery, Berks, and Bucks County areas. Her death in the Spring of 2012 left a void in the quilting world.
She was a traditional quilter with a love of the turn of the century look. She enjoyed using contemporary tools and techniques when designing her own original work. Her work was meticulous resulting in many awards throughout the quilting world. Her knowledge of antique quilts, traditional patterns and quilt marking was respected throughout the area.
She shared her knowledge of antique and traditional quilting through membership in The Boyertown Area Quilt Guild, Sisters by Choice, Keystone Quilters, Quakertown, Berks County Quilt Guild, Homemakers Country Quilters, Piecable Friends as well several smaller groups. As teacher, she held classes in various venues including Reading Area Community College Adult Education, guild workshops, numerous quilting stores and in her home studio.
Rosie chaired the Boyertown Historical Society quilt show for fifteen years and for many years designed the floor layout of the Keystone Quilts show. Raffle quilts designed, stitched, marked, and/or quilted by Rosie were a popular fund raiser for local guilds.
Rosie’s knowledge, sharing, and enthusiasm for quilting will be passed along through many generations by those she taught and introduced into today’s world of quilting.
