Linda Fisher Quilts
Linda Fisher is a prolific quilter beginning with her first quilt as an adult in 1994 and continuing through the present (2020). She has taught many people in West Texas to quilt. She is a member of the Lubbock day quilt guild (The South Plains Quilt Guild) and the Caprock Art Quilters. She loves to take old blocks and finish quilts and to put her own artistic twist on traditional quilt patterns.
Between 2015 and 2020, Mrs. Fisher offered over 100 quilts to the Museum for its collection. Over 70 were selected and Mrs. Fisher then chose to auction the remaining pieces to benefit an Endowment for the Curator of Clothing and Textiles position working to ensure that someone would always be employed to care for the quilted treasures.
Fisher Quilt Auction to Benefit Museum Endowment
In February 2022 more than 50 quilts made by Linda Fisher will be auctioned to benefit the Endowment for the Clothing and Textiles Curator position. These beautiful pieces are separate from the 73 made by Mrs. Fisher that were accepted into the Museum's collection and which are on exhibit through March 6, 2022. The 50+ pieces will be offered through an on-line auction as well as an in person event on Saturday, February 26, 2022.
Linda Fisher is a prolific West Texas quilter who brings an artistic eye to her love of color and fabric. While many of her quilts reference traditional patterns she arranges the blocks in a unique manner. Mrs. Fisher has taught quilting classes, served as a judge and shared her love of quilting with organizations throughout West Texas. Her understanding of the importance of preservation led to financial contributions and donations of quilts and quilt related materials that have significantly strengthened the quilt Collection at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
Links for the online auction will be uploaded to this website in January. For further information firstname.lastname@example.org or (806) 834-5146.
