History of the Black-Eyed Susan Quilt

Nancy Magnuson and Barbara Simons created a quilt banner for the 1993 AGM at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada that long served as JASNA MD’s logo.

The banners served as backdrop and decoration for the Lake Louise AGM.

The quilt banner is adorned with two Regency period women sitting at a table, surrounded by the official Maryland state flowers, the Black-Eyed Susan. This banner seemed a perfect fit to identify ourselves as Maryland Janeites among our fellow JASNA members.

The quilt is enjoying retirement in residence at Goucher College.
