I just got the following information via email from The National Quilt Museum and want to share it on their behalf.
On September 13, 2013, The National Quilt Museum released the new copy of their collection book. The book, entitled “Collection of The National Quilt Museum“, is updated every 3-5 years. The new book includes quilts that have been added to the collection since the last publication and additional information on many quilts that were in previous editions. The book presents over 300 quilts from the official collection of The National Quilt Museum in a straightforward format that highlights the visual artistry and personal achievement of the quilters that created these extraordinary works of art.
One dollar from each copy of the “Collection of the National Quilt Museum” will be given to The Libby Lehman Medical Fund to help with her medical expenses. Libby is a longtime friend of the Museum and served on the Museum Board of Directors in 2012. As most of you know, Libby had a brain aneurysm in May of this year and is currently receiving daily care at a medical facility in Houston, Texas. The cover of the new edition features the work “Escapade” by Libby Lehman.
