Quilts Patterns by Maggie Ball, Dragonfly Quilts

Maggie began quilting in 1986 and enjoys creating her own designs from elements of traditional patterns. Her award-winning quilts have been exhibited nationally and overseas. Teaching quilting is a natural extension of her passion and she finds it rewarding. Her teaching experience is extensive in the USA, and beyond to the UK and Mongolia, as well as quilting with over 800 children in local schools.

As a volunteer in Mongolia in 2004, Maggie taught quilting to low-income and unemployed women. In 2006 she helped organize the First International Quilt Show there in collaboration with quilters from the UK and Japan. Her association with Mongolian quilters continues and she successfully headed a capital campaign raising $80,000 to purchase a permanent facility for the Mongolian Quilting Center in Ulaanbaatar, where she visited and taught in 2009.

Maggie is the author of four books published by Krause Publications. Creative Quilting with Kids and Patchwork and Quilting with Kids aim to encourage adults to pass on the quilting tradition to the next generation. Traditional Quilts with a Twist contains new patterns derived from the traditional Bear’s Paw, Trip Around the World, and Ohio Star. Her most recent book, Bargello Quilts with a Twist, features quilts made from her original, easy to construct, 16-piece Bargello block. She has also just developed a template-free technique for making traditional Kaleidoscope blocks and is designing and producing patterns.

Maggie offers three illustrated lectures and a trunk show as well as a variety of workshops. Please visit her website for descriptions of these, class supply lists, and her teaching schedule.
