The Story Behind Bonnie’s Rocky Mountain Star

The Quilters’ Community | Episode 111

The quilt gracing the cover of the 45th anniversary Quilters Newsletter (August/September 2014) was designed by Mary Leman Austin, former executive editor of QN and daughter of QN founder Bonnie Leman. It was made and quilted by Peg Spradlin. There’s a reason for the color choices as well as for the design. Learn what went into designing and making this gorgeous quilt, and turn to the pages of the August/September issue for the quilt’s pattern or purchase the pattern online.
