'The 'Row House' wall hanging is an older piece and was purchased by the provincial government as part of the art procurement.
'Gower Street', 'Back Yard' and 'Quidi Vidi' were commissioned pieces that are in Nova Scotia.
The Fishermen's Museum, English Harbour West, is based on a photo I took a couple years ago. Each piece of 'clapboard' was stitched on one piece at a time.
'View From The Rooms' is a large textile piece based on a photo taken from the 4th floor of The Rooms.
I challenged friend and avid quilter, Linda Coolen Smith to participate. Linda is a member of a modern quilt guild in Halifax. Her work is beautiful. However, Linda emailed me back saying she participated in the Art Challenge last week. I thought I had gone through her posts but . . . In any event, please visit Linda's blog to see her wonderful quilts. I met Linda (had lunch with her and another quilter) last summer when I was in Nova Scotia.
