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 30x30 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 will be announced here in September. 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 owners to be enjoyed.

There will be two quilts created to cover any expenses. 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's family after the quilt show, so they can see them up close before moving on to their next destination.

Here is a partial list of the artists who created quilts for the exhibit and auction. More are working on theirs. The artists are having fun making tutorial videos, sharing their stories here on TQS, posting on social media and especially their blogs. The work is breathtaking and emotional, for their friend Libby.
