The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Libby's Line Dances" by Mary McCauley
Do a puzzle of Mary McCauley's quilt, Libby's Line Dances.
Libby Lehman was Mary's quilting teacher for as many classes as she could take with her. One of those at Art Quilt Tahoe was called Class Act, where you had to make a quilt inspired by your favorite class, which for Mary was one of Libby's classes. Libby taught Mary the thread play featured throughout the quilt, but she also taught her and many other students Texas Line Dancing after classes were over for the day. Libby's line, which is her signature curve featured in the quilt, and the line dancing helped Mary come up with double entendre for the title, Libby's Line Dances. Mary's take on the quilt was to take the curves and make them 3-dimensional for the quilt so that they danced on their own.
