Inspired by Libby Auction

So, I haven't posted in a while.  I was in Australia and New Zealand the past couple of weeks.  More on that later, still trying to catch up on some rest ;-)
I just wanted to make you aware of a wonderful cause that I have been fortunate enough to be a part of. Libby Lehman is a quilt artist and teacher who suffered a stroke last year and is going through a lot with her recovery.  The medical bills are adding up and a wonderful community of quilting friends have put together this project of quilts to auction off and all proceeds will go to Libby and her family.  You can follow this cause on Facebook here. Watch the video above to see all the wonderful artists with their interpretation of Libby's own quilts with their own projects. You can see mine at around 1:35 in the video. 


I made Solar Flares for my project.  I had a lot of fun putting this quilt together and I feel really honored to have been asked to be a part of this wonderful cause.

If you want to have a chance to buy Solar Flares or any of the other quilts in this project you can follow the auction here.  It starts in 6 days, so don't be late! Remember, all the money will go to support Libby in her recovery. You can see these quilts at Houston Quilt Market in a special exhibit as well as in Paducah, Kentucky for AQS QuiltWeek next year.

Your work is absolute gorgeous. I have a hand dye yardage by Jamie Wallen (cotton/silk) My intentions are to do only quilting and this has inspired me to do this. I will follow this cause and make a bid, may not win, but who knows. Good luck. Your work is so inspirational. I just go your bookd Wide open spaces and it is the best easiest read yet.

Now that is exactly the kind of "Amazing" I expect from you. You are such a talented quilter.

That is most certainly some stunning and AMAZING work. NO better name for it, either! I am literally taken back! This is sure to donate a nice bit to the fellow quilt friend! I hope the Auction goes well as I expect it to!
