DENTON —Texas Woman’s University alumna Billie Margaret Shewell Hubbard of Krum recently donated a quilt of the Little Chapel-in-the-Woods to the university. The large, quilted textile is currently hanging in the TWU Blagg-Huey Library on the back wall of the first floor.

The pictorial quilt incorporates approximately 9,800-square-inch fabric squares machine-pieced together using the Little Chapel-in-the-Woods counted cross stitch pattern, which was copyrighted in 1982, as a guide. Highlights on trees, bushes, grasses, flowers, etc. were achieved using iron-on appliqué, bias tube appliqué, three dimensional fabric folding and multi-colored sprinkles.

The quilt, which measures 95 by 93 inches, was commercially machine quilted and bound at Linda’s Quilt Shop in Denton.
Ms. Hubbard began the project in January 1983 and, after several revisions, completed the quilt in time to be displayed at the 55th Homecoming dinner of the Class of 1951 in 2006.

Ms. Hubbard received her bachelor’s degree from TWU, then known as the Texas State College for Women, in 1951, and her master of arts in clothing and costume design from TWU in 1985.
