It is with deep sadness that I share the news that Mary Pauline Laughlin passed away on Friday, March 22nd, just 3 months short of her 101st birthday.

Subscribers of The Quilt Pattern Magazine and of my newsletter and blog, will remember my articles about Mary Pauline and her quilting.

She was a lifelong crafter and had booths at the Dixieland Mall and the Daisy Craft Fair for many years. She received awards for painting, rug hooking, and quilts. A picture of one of her quilts is displayed in the Library of Congress Archives in Washington, D.C..  She was also interviewed for Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories project in 2008, for the Alliance for American Quilts. It has been recorded. You can read the interview at the Alliance for American Quilts.

Mary Pauline will be remembered with love and appreciation by many.
