Exhibit by the Mtl MQG!

As I mentioned in previous post, the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild prepared an exhibit. Just a quick post today to let you know that the exhibit is open since Sunday and it will run throughout the month of February (free admission).

It was really a pleasure to collaborate with Maison de la culture Marie-Uguay on this exhibit, a gallery run by the city of Montreal. They have a great space that enhanced the showcase. They did an amazing job at setting up the quilts. The quilts looked as they were suspended in space and the lighting was perfect, casting beautiful shadows on the floor.

It was such a reward to see the exhibit on Sunday. Members of the guild created beautiful pieces for the show. And even though we had seen them at sewing days and meetings, it was really inspiring to see this great variety of quilts all hanging together. The day went so well. People seemed to enjoyed walking around the quilts and chating. And I think the talk given by me and Cinzia Allocca on characteristics of modern quilting was appreciated.

If you are close to Montreal, I hope this will make you want to come and visit the exhibit. You’ll find the address and opening hours of Maison de la culture Marie-Uguay here. If you would like to see a few more pictures of the exhibit, I invite you read the post on the guild’s blog.
