Quilt Reflections 2014 - Spirit of the Prairies
Melissa stumbled across a great video recently from the Remarkable Symposium of Quilts 2011 in New Zealand. I'd never seen it before and the exciting part is that there was a Canadian Content exhibition on display that year by members of the Fibre Art Network. My piece was in that show along with a fine show of talent by over 30 Western Canadian Fibre artists.
