World Wide Whispers quilt coming Home

My world Wide Whispers Quilt, Looking In, Looking Out along with the other 12 from Canada and 12 each from Scotland, Ireland, Netherlands and USA have been travelling through Europe, the Mancusco shows in the US, Ireland, Scotland, England and Europe since 2018.   The last stop was Quilt Canada in Edmonton in June. It will now be sent home.  It was an honour to be chosen as the NB representative in this project which was organized by Kim Caskey of Edmonton Alberta. 

The Oct. 23 Thread Painting class scheduled for the Andrew and Laura McCain Gallery in Florenceville- Bristol NB was postponed because of the covid 19 circuit breaker in that part of the district.  It has been rescheduled to April 24, 2022.

World Wide Whispers Exhibition

I am very sorry to say that because of a miscommunication the World Wide Whispers quilts will not be shown at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham UK.  I am extremely disappointed as that was my main reason for attending.  However I will still be delivering my 1 hr. demonstrations on using inktense pencils to create fabric for appliqués.

The World Wide Whispers quilts will be shown at Quilt Canada 2020 in Edmonton Alberta as well as many venues throughout Europe.

World Wide Whispers Touring

Team Canada’s collection of 13 quilts will be proudly exhibited at this weekend’s Festival of Quilts show (Edmonton & District Quilters’ Guild), Edmonton, Alberta, Central Lion’s Center (Saturday and Sunday). After that, they will swiftly be shipped off to Mora, Sweden for a 5-Team exhibit there July 10-20, followed by a 5-Team exhibit in Limerick, Ireland for the rest of July. After that, they will all travel to Birmingham for the Festival of Quilts (August 1-4) and then on to Cumbria, Scotland for exhibit at Farfield Mills August 28-September 30).
 
Mine is the 3rd quilt of the series featuring the saw whet owl on the post.
 
The entire collection has also been confirmed for exhibition at all 2020 Mancusco Quilt Shows (6 shows) and at Quilt Canada in Edmonton in June!
