Congratulations are in order for two of our members who exhibited this year at the International Quilt Association’s Quilts: A World of Beauty judged show in Houston. This was held last week. Helen Godden was awarded an Honourable Mention for her quilt Zen Magpies in the Art-Painted Surface category. Jenny Bowker was awarded an Honourable Mention for her quilt The Quiltmaker, in the Art-People, Portraits and Figures category.
