Early warning – it’s only a month away – the most fabulous quilt/art show in Toronto! The dates are Friday, Nov. 11 through Sunday, Nov. 13 and the venue is the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, 6 Garamond Court, near Don Mills Road and Eglinton Ave.E.
This show & sale is mounted only every 3 years, and I think that’s a perfect interval. The volunteers from the York Heritage Quilters Guild really put a lot of effort into organizing a fantastic show.
I’ll have two recent works in the show: a bed quilt that I have titled “There are always flowers for those who want to see them”, which is a quote from Henri Matisse and my “Did you see that?” wall quilt inspired by Charley Harper. When I get the binding on the bed quilt, I’ll make sure to get a photo posted.
But that’s not all! I will be donating a small wall quilt to the silent auction, which is a great fundraiser for Sketch. I blogged about this little quilt on March 28 – Charley Harper’s Gray-crowned Rosy Finch.
