Best of Quilting in Canada

Through Lucy’s Eye

In 2021 I made this art quilt of Lucy (Edmonton Valley Zoo) and I entered it into the Canadian Quilters Association (CQA) national juried show. I was thrilled to learn that it was juried into the 2021 CQA Show. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the in-person show was cancelled and replaced with a virtual show so I never got the opportunity to see it hang on the show floor.

This summer I received at email from CQA informing me that they were compiling a selection of juried entries into a “Best of Quilting in Canada”collection and they wanted to include my piece. The quilts would be exhibited in the New England Quilt Museum (NEQM) in Lowell, Massachusetts, from January 17 to May 9, 2023. Needless to say, I was shocked and thrilled. 

All of the selected quilts are also featured in the 2023 spring edition of Canadian Quilters Magazine. 

2021 CQA National Juried Show

Today I got the most exciting email: “Dear Deborah. On behalf of the CQA/ACC Board of Directors, I am pleased to inform you that your entry, Through Lucy’s Eye has been accepted into the virtual National Juried Show (NJS).”

An art quilt I made of Lucy (an Elephant at our local Zoo) was juried into the 2021 Canadian Quilters Association National Juried Show. Last year, a quilt I made of my Bernese Mountain Dog Spirit was juried into the show that was supposed to be hosted in Edmonton. Unfortunately it was cancelled because of COVID-19. They carried forward last year’s juried entries so that means two of my quilts will be in this year’s show. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post any public pictures just in case they may be seen by one of the judges.
