Dave's Quilt
Dave Lieber is a Newspaper columnist for the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
Here's a picture of his original quilt full of  life's memories:
(You can click on the picture for a larger view).   Last September 1997 it was decided that this old quilt was beyond any type of repair so our guild decided to replace the old with new and  The old quilt - Click for a larger view (45KB)
proceeded to make new squares to duplicate as close as possible the look of the old quilt.  I do not have digital pictures of this stage of the process but do have pictures of the final step - putting the binding on.

Dave  was there to video tape the binding process and get his quilt story - after all, he is a reporter.  He is building a video of his quilt to air on his web site in early September, so be on the look out for it.
The new quilt was officially presented to him at our guild meeting in July 98. Here he is telling us about the history of his quilt:
