Laura's passion for making quilts is an extension of her love of sewing.
Her early involvement in 4-H provided her first teaching experience to younger members.
Laura is a natural born teacher. She has taught quiltmaking and written how-to books
with Diana McClun since 1986.
These are some of the most popular quilt books in the world.
The pair has also worked together on television programs, with study groups and in seminars.
The excellent teaching methods have touched thousands of students, providing them with a
good start in basic quiltmaking.
Laura is the editor of our new Encyclopedia of Quilting.
Here are a few of her books on quilting.
