Leah Zieber

New Member Tea followed by History Repeated

Join us early at 6:00 p.m. for the New Member Tea. See the NEWS article (look for the photo with the tea and cake) in the column to the right.

Leah A Zieber is a Southern California quilt historian and quilt maker specializing in Antique Reproduction Quilts from the nineteenth century. Her reproduction quilts have been exhibited at quilt shows and historical museums across the country. Most recently her 19th century star quilt, I Can Only Imagine was published and patterned by American Quilt Study Group in the publication, Stars: A Study of 19th Century Star Quilts. The quilt is in its fourth year of a cross-country tour.

She has worked closely with antique quilt collectors cataloging, managing and independently researching their extensive textile collections. Over fifteen years of in-depth exposure and study of antique textiles has provided her with a wealth of knowledge that is instrumental in identifying and dating antique and vintage quilt. Her own quilt collection spans over one hundred and fifty years and she shares her knowledge of American Quilt History through lectures and workshops with California quilt guilds and historical societies.

Newly completed, Libby Morgan: Reunion, is the first historical fiction novel in her American Heritage Quilt Series, which chronologically follows Elizabeth Jane Morgan and her descendents through one hundred years of American Quilting History. Each novel has an accompanying Quilt Pattern Book which helps to transport readers back in time through the recreation of real nineteenth and early twentieth century quilts and sewing projects found in the stories. All the projects are based on true-to-period antique quilts, tops and blocks as well as many other textile related items that are found in the Zieber Quilts Collection.
