Virginia Leipper's Quilts and other projects

Virginia Leipper was always involved with sewing and other such projects as far back as I can remember. She made most of the clothes for my sisters and I . She also made some clothing for my brother. After we all grew up and began leaving home, Mother got into more recreational projects, including quilting. She joined a quilters group in Monterey with her longtime friend. When Mom and Dad moved to Reno, she found the Truckee Meadows Quilters and joined the group. She participated in special classes, quilting retreats, and shows. She thoroughly enjoyed the group, learning new techniques, and making special projects such as quilts for neonatal babies.

Virginia Leipper's miscellaneous projects

2010 TMQ Quilt Show

Not long after Mom passed away in October 2009 we were contacted by TMQ member, Diane McKiddie. She would be responsible for the Memorial tribute section of the 2010 Quilt Show. She wanted to know if we would like to have some of Mom's quilts included. Diane ultimately chose five of Mom's quilts for display. Mom's quilts were placed in a prominent location at the quilt show. They were the first quilts you saw as you entered the show. Needless to say we are very honored and thankful to Diane and all of TMQ for the opportunity to remember Mom in this very special way. In the top photo Mom's quilts are on the left. Click on the images for a larger view.

1993 and 1995 TMQ Retreats at Lake Tahoe

Legacy – In 2006 Virginia Leipper's family donated most of her quilting materials, supplies and books to Truckee Meadows Quilters. Giving this material to TMQ is like a gift that keeps on giving. Not only did the quilters appreciate it they made useful and beautiful things such as hospice gowns and neonatal quilts to give to local organizations and charities. Even the materials that couldn't be used for quilts or gowns were used to make quilts for the animals at the Humane Society. It is truly gratifying to see Mom's materials put to such good use.
