Marie Webster revolutionized quilt design in the early 20th century, producing Art Nouveau inspired applique patterns that radically departed from the patchwork and Crazy quilt styles of the late 19th century. Her Practical Patchwork Company of Marion, Indiana produced patterns, kits and partially completed quilts, which were enthusiastically embraced by quiltmakers, especially throughout the quilt revival of the 1920s and 1930s.
