For Libby

I have been so late in getting this out. I was very happy to be a part of this! Please read below and see my piece inspired by Libby’s piece “Watch Your Step Beach”. Mine piece is “Watch Your step Desert”.

Inspired By Libby
Libby Lehman, a beloved woman, wife, mother, talented quilter, teacher, and artist is struggling with multiple medical issues. Her personality and sense of humor is leading the charge for recovery. Team Libby and her quilting friends are her support through this time. What’s left? Well, what do quilters do at times like this? Make quilts. An invitation was sent out last fall to award winning quilters and teachers to create a 30×30 quilt inspired by one of Libby’s quilts, to be auctioned off to aide the family with the medical bills.

This unique collection will be on display at the International Quilt Show in Houston late October, 2014. Two quilts will be up for a silent auction at the show. The collection will be up for an online auction for everyone to bid on. The auction info to be announced September on thequiltshow.com. The exhibit will then go to the American Quilter’s Society Paducah Show in April, 2015. After this, they will be shipped to their new owner to be enjoyed.

The entire monies raised from the invited artists will be sent to Team Libby as soon as the auction is complete. The quilts will be personally delivered to Libby and family after the quilt show, so they can see them up close before moving on to their next destination.

How exciting!!
