World Wide Whispers

I have been part of Team Canada for the World Wide Whispers Project. In a nutshell it’s a bit like the child’s birthday party game where the leader starts by whispering a sentence in the ear of the next participant and then it continues around the room, evolving and changing from the original sentence. Kim Caskey, the Team Canada leader produced the first quilt inspired by a photograph by Lesley Zwaal of Edmonton Alberta. Artists from each province and territory of Canada (13) were sent a photograph showing only the most recent wall quilt and given a one month time frame to create a 18 by 24 inch wall quilt inspired by that photograph.  I was the New Brunswick representative and created the third Quilt in the series. It has been a long 13 months when we were not allowed to reveal our involvement and saw only a photo of the quilt that inspired our piece. Finally on January 6, 2019 Kim sent us a wonderful power point presentation showing us all the quilts, artist statements and more.

 Also involved in their own World Wide Whispers were teams from Scotland, Ireland, the Netherlands, USA.

The Canadian collection will be shipped to Scotland where it will hang, along with the other 4 teams, at the Scotland Guild’s AGM event in Glasgow in March. Following that, they will travel to The Netherlands for a show in April. The most exciting part is that all quilts from the 5 teams will be displayed at The Birmingham UK Quilt festival in August 2019.

Looking In Looking Out is my piece. In a separate post I will show my inspiration piece by Pat Findlay.
