Quilt collector and author Bill Volckening was one of the lucky souls that won one of Libby Lehman's quilts in her recent auction. After studying "Woodland Chromatics," which Libby made in 1984, he decided that not only was it a "modern" quilt, but perhaps, it just might be "futuristic."

Thank, Bill, for your wonderful comments on Libby's quilt, "Woodland Chromatics". I just read your article to Libby over the phone (I am one of her 3 sisters), and she said to say "Thank you, thank you, Bill, for buying this quilt and for all the complimentary things you said about me and the quilt. I am happy that this quilt went to the perfect home. You are an angel for buying it."
