Celebrating Diversity

Just back from a trip up to the Quilt Museum in York. Really enjoyed this exhibition and the amazing collection of very different pieces.
All of a similar size, each country invited to exhibit two pieces of work that represented the diversity of their country. We were represented by a stunning collection of little squares designed by members of the Contemporary Quilt Group each depicting a different aspect of British life and by Sheena Norquay with a very subtle set of squares each with a variation of a spiral quilting design.
The stand-out pieces were "My own Venice" by Maria Luisa Comand with a canal view of Venice  representing Italy and "Swinging Amsterdam" by Rita Dijkstra of Netherlands. Both very detailed pieces with great depiction of water in both and very detailed pieced buildings.
No pictures as there was photography allowed.
