Travelling Quilts

I haven't been keeping up very well with posting where my quilts have been, so here's an update on a peripatetic pair,"Yadanabon" and "Log Canada". By a rather odd coincidence, both of these quilts will end their current display schedules this summer in Texas!

"Yadanabon", which is part of the travelling Hoffman Challenge show, has been criss-crossing the U.S. since last fall. 
Since the grand opening show at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival in Loveland, Colorado, it has appeared at the following venues:
Sept 2015: Amish Country Quilt Show, Ohio.
Sept 2015: Hardy Country Heritage Quilt Show, West Virginia.
Oct 2015: Washington State Quilters, Spokane.
Nov 2015: Davies Manor Quilt and Fibre Arts Show, TN.
Jan 2016: World Quilt Florida (Mancuso), FL

Upcoming shows for "Yadanabon" are:
April 2016: Huntington Quilters, NY.
June 2016: Common Threads Quilt Show, Wichita, KS.
July 2016: Garland, TX. 

"Log Canada" has been in constant motion around the world since it was first created in 2009. I am honoured to say it has represented Canada at many top quilt shows, often as the opening quilt,  and has been part of the IQF Ruby Jubilee Exhibit since 2014.
As part of this show, it has appeared at:

International Quilt Festival/Houston, October 30 – November 2, 2014
International Quilt Festival/Chicago, March 26-28, 2015
Quilt! Knit! Stitch! in Portland, Oregon, August 13-15, 2015

Now, I am  pleased to learn that "Log Canada" has been selected to be displayed at the Texas Quilt Museum,La Grange, TX, June 30 – September 25, 2016. 

This means that in July, the two quilts will be about 200 miles from each other...4000 miles from home :)


  1. How fun to have your quilts travel so far :-)

  2. How marvelous is that! Your quilts are better traveled than many people are!

  3. I hope they at least write to tell you how their doing. Mothers worry when their children are far from home!

  4. Gorgeous quilts! Congrats on having your quilts displayed at such tremendous shows!

  5. Oh the stories they would tell if they could talk! Your quilts are great that other people can enjoy them!
