Betty Ford-Smith ––

Piecing the past with pinecone quilts

Pinecone quilts, also known as Pine Burr, are made with folded triangles sewn side-by-side onto a foundation in concentric circles. Educator and quilter Betty Ford-Smith keeps the tradition of pinecone quilts alive by passing on the rich history of the Pinecone quilt and detailed instructions on creating your pinecone quilt. She shares her knowledge of Pine Cone quilting mastery and even some of her beloved teacher, Miss Sue, life's anecdotes and cautionary tales given to her during their quilting lessons together.
