Year in review – 2017.12.30

It’s that time of year again!   I’ve been looking back at 2017, reviewing my quilting-related activities and accomplishments.

Making art – I created more than 13 art quilts and other fiber art with a variety of themes and techniques.  Many of them are shown below.


Exhibiting my art – I submitted my work to 9 juried shows and challenges, and had at least one artwork accepted into each one.  I won 2 awards – both for the same quilt ‘Eclipse’, but at 2 different shows – see this page for details.  I also submitted art to 2 SAQA auctions.

I was thrilled to have my work exhibited at several local venues during 2017, so I was able to see my work on display.  A few of my favorites were:

Trunk shows and workshops – I continued to show my work at local guilds, and teach workshops.

Travel – this was a great year for travel for me – some quilting-related, some not.

  • January – I traveled to Inuvik NWT to teach a 2-day workshop (read about it here)
  • May – the SAQA Western Canada first ever retreat in Kelowna BC (it was fun, educational and inspiring – but apparently I totally forgot to blog about it!)
  • June – a week in NYC with my husband, following by a week in Toronto at Quilt Canada (blog post here)
  • September – the annual Fibre Art Network retreat, this year in Lac Le Jeune BC (read about here)


Overall, 2017 was a busy and fulfilling year for me.  I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what I’ve been up to in the past 12 months.  I’ll be back in a couple of days with information about my goals plans for 2018.

  1. I enjoy following your blog all year. Congratulations on your many successful entries. I enjoy seeing the quilts you have made this year as they are very different from each other. I also work in many styles. While my work tends to be dark, in coloration or in mood, I do try to lighten up from time to time. Happy new year!
