Meet the Maker

Welcome to the newest feature of the KHQS newsletterwebsite, and social media pages. The past 18 months have left many of us feeling isolated and out of touch with others. This feature is designed to entertain, engage, and help us reconnect to one another. If you would like to be featured in the Meet the Maker segment, contact Teri Smith at
Meet the Maker Mary Bauer

Meet the Maker - Mary Bauer

The Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society (KHQS) nurtures quilters of all skill levels from novice to national award winners. It is a place where Mary Bauer has been embraced by loads of lovely friendships, where she honed her skills with instruction from nationally recognized teachers, and where she herself has helped launch the quilting journey for so many others.

Mary remembers her first quilt was a “pretty ugly” patchwork that she made with no pattern and no plan. She moved on then to make memory quilts with some of her kids’ artwork using photo transfers. Mary moved quickly to free motion quilting for finishing her quilts because she never found straight line quilting very satisfying. “At first it was just wide meanders to hold the quilt sandwich together,” she said. Today she does remarkable and award-winning quilting on a Bernina Q20. 

Mary has earned many awards in local and international shows with awards at the Kentucky State Fair, including Best of Show, Best Quilting and Sweepstakes. She has also won at the Bluegrass Quilt Festival, IHQS, AQS Grand Rapids, Daytona Beach, Charlotte, and Phoenix, and at IQA in Houston.

Meet the Maker Mary Bauer

We were happy to be able to meet up again for our annual KHAS retreat!  Our teacher was Vicki McCarty of Calico Patch Designs.  Friday was spent working on our own projects until Vicki's trunk show Friday night.  Saturday and Sunday were spent working on the Gingerbread House.  It was a wonderful weekend!

We had a wonderful time at the KHQS Spring Retreat held at the Cave City Convention Center in Cave City, KY.  There was a lot of hugging, visiting, eating, laughing and, yes, even some sewing!
