Marsha Radtke’s reproduction quilt, "The Pastor’s Attic," was the basis for her book, "A Baltimore Album: 25 Applique Patterns." This award-winning quilt, which is on national tour of special exhibits with the International Quilt Association, has been selected to appear in the Open European Quilt Championship in the Netherlands during May 2011.
Radtke is a member of two local quilt quilds, Cumberland County Piecemakers and the Fantastic Quilters.
Another of Radtke’s quilts, “Return to the Attic,” which is an adaptation of “The Pastor’s Attic,” has been juried into an American Quilter’s Society sponsored international quilting competition being held this month at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA. Her quilt will be judged along with 175 others in the annual contest, now in its second year. Quilts were entered in this international contest from 41 U.S. states and eight other countries.
