Event organized by the Canadian Quilters Association, the national organization of quilters
36 small quilts were created and donated by elite Canadian quilters who have won major awards at the prestigious Canadian National Juried Quilt Show. Oliver artist Marianne Parsons along with Judy Harpur and Miriam March from Rock Creek have created pieces for this event.
Each quilt is available for purchase, as are beautiful greeting cards featuring the quilts. Proceeds from sales of the quilts and cards will go to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada: (www.childrenswish.ca)
The 36 quilts were split into two shows to travel to most provinces and the Northwest Territories until June 2015. Then they will be combined again into a full show at the CQA/ACC annual conference, June 4 – 6, 2015 in Lethbridge AB. After the conference, the quilts will be mailed to their new owners.
You can see the full group of quilts at the Canadian Quilters Association’s website: www.canadianquilter.com Click on the CQA blog button on the right, then click on ‘It’s Time For Colour’ in the top menu bar.
18 of the ‘It’s Time For Colour’ quilts will be coming to Oliver March 9 and 10 and the public is invited to a free showing of them at Beyond Bliss Esthetics at 6250 Main St. They will be on display from 11-5 on Monday, Mar. 9, and from 9-5 on Tues. Mar. 10. Everyone is invited to drop in and check out these creative fabric artists from across Canada over the 2 days.
