QuiltCon People’s Choice: “Quilt for Our Bed” by Laura Hartrich

On the last day of QuiltCon, we tallied the votes for People’s Choice, and one quilt stood above the rest. Congratulations to Laura Hartrich of the Chicago MQG! She won for her “Quilt for Our Bed,” pieced by Laura and quilted by Nikki Maroon.


“I have been a quilter for 5 years and had never made a quilt for our bed. I decided it was time. I was inspired by Jen Carlton Bailly’s phenomenal 5HTP Squared quilt, which used quarter circles in a way that almost looked like letters but weren’t. I decided to run with that inspiration and actually make letters from quarter circles, squares, and triangles. The words are something my husband and I say to each other every night before drifting off. I figure, if I stay up too late sewing, now the quilt can say it for me.”

Congratulations again, Laura!

And thanks to our People’s Choice Sponsor:

  1. I was not able to attend QuiltCon but I think you all did a great job choosing a winner for people’s choice! The more I look at the photo the more little details I find and I can only imagine how many charming details and traits this quilt has in person! Congrats Laura & Nikki.
