Reconnecting with a Quilting Master: Ruth B. McDowell


  1. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with Ruth, a quilting treasure. I’m inspired to try!

  2. Thank you for sharing this wonderful information about a unique fiber artist and fiber genius. I appreciate the references to explore more about Ruth’s designs and art.

  3. I had the great privilege of taking two workshops with Ruth McDowell through Northwest Quilters. They were wonderful experiences. More than once I have used her technique to make a quilt, or parts of one. Not only is she an amazing artist but also an excellent teacher.

    1. Oh my goodness, you were so lucky! Really nice to hear that she’s an excellent teacher. Hopefully we’ll get to see one of your pieces at a future Guild meeting. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

  4. Thanks for this post. I am always amazed that Ruth’s work is pieced yet looks so realistic. And, I love the fun fabrics she uses! The Iris quilt is beautiful-just waiting for the first ones to bloom here.

  5. Lovely quilts. As you say, beautiful use of “what do I do with this?” fabrics.
