     Leah Zieber is the force behind quilt making products and historical fiction stories found at Zieber Quilts. She is a Southern California quilt historian and quilt maker of antique reproduction quilts from the nineteenth century, some of which have been exhibited at quilt shows
and historical museums. She has worked closely with antique quilt collectors cataloging, managing and independently researching their extensive textile collections. It is this in-depth exposure that has made her instrumental in identifying and dating antique and vintage quilts.

History Repeated Antique Quilt Trunk Show
Leah Zieber​
     Her own quilt collection spans over one hundred and fifty years. She shares her knowledge of American Quilt History through lectures and workshops with quilt guilds and historical societies.
     Ms Zieber also writes historical fiction novels in the American Heritage Quilt Series. These books follow Elizabeth Jane Morgan and her descendants through one hundred and fifty years of American Quilting History. Each book has an accompanying Quilt Pattern Book.
