Marie Daugherty Webster (July 19, 1859 – 1956) was a renowned quilt designer, successful businesswoman, and the author of the first American book about quilting, Quilts, Their Story, and How to Make Them, originally published in 1915. Marie Webster learned to quilt in 1909, and did all of her needlework in her home. She began her pattern business, Practical Patchwork Company, out of her home in 1921 and ran the thriving company successfully for more than 20 years. Her landmark book, Quilts: Their Story and How to Make Them, was first published in 1915. When Marie Webster moved out of this house in 1942, she disbanded the Practical Patchwork Company and ceased to make any more quilts. Marie Webster was inducted into the Quilters Hall of Fame in 1991. Her residence in Marion, Indiana, United States, the Marie Webster House, is now home of the Quilters’ Hall of Fame and has been designated a National Historic Landmark.
