On Sunday, July 17 the museum hosted “Quilt Walk”, an indoor / outdoor exhibit that included heritage quilts from the CMMM collections and more recent items created by local crafters. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, we’d like to show you, over the next week or so, the beautiful handiwork we had on display.
From Terri Paziuk:
Flimsy or quilt-top-to-be-quilted. Owner / Creator Terri Paziuk with Pattern by Laura A. Coia of ‘SewVeryEasy’ – – For Canada’s 150th Birthday in 2017.
These beautifully bright colours greeted visitors at the entrance to the Duvall House. And, yes, for the non-quilter, Terri wasn’t joking. A google search confirms that ‘flimsy’ is a real quilting word: “A flimsy (n., pl: flimsies) is a completed quilt top, but not quilted, with no batting, backing, or binding.” from the Quilted Twins Quilting Lingo.
