The hunt is on! Follow a team of antique-quilt mavens as they share how their search for quilts from the past turned into present-day quilt patterns. With decades of knowledge about vintage textiles between them, the authors present:
* Patterns for 13 stunning quilts, each inspired by an antique quilt from the authors' personal collections
* Tips for finding antique quilts, both in your hometown and online
* Which quilts to snap up quickly--and which to walk away from
* How to determine if the price is right
Packed with photos of both newly made quilts (and the patterns to make them) plus images of the antique quilts that inspired them, the book shows this duo's treasure hunting in action. Linda and Leah will inspire you to join the hunt!
Quilting has been a part of my life for over 30 years. I made my first quilt for my second-born child some 30 odd years ago. I have been collecting and studying antique quilts for over 20 years. The past 10 years I've been publishing patterns based on my antique quilts in Australian and international magazines. Sharing my antique quilt collection through trunk shows and redesigning quilts from them are both passions that are at the very core of my being. When not traveling the world visiting friends, quilt exhibits, or museums, I divide my time between Wonga Park, Australia, and my beach house. These landscapes provide peace and inspiration aplenty.

I have been working independently with collectors and quilt historians for 20 years, cataloging and researching American quilts and textiles. I love to share my own antique quilt and textile collection and my knowledge of American quilts with guilds throughout the United States and abroad through lectures, workshops, and quilt history retreats. You can connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, Etsy, and my web page, zieberquilts.com.
