Quilt patches show..

Got out to the local farm fair, more on that later, but today’s post is about some of the amazing quilt patches from the display called “Quilt of Belonging

The Quilt of Belonging is “..the largest and most inclusive work of textile art made about Canada”  The 120-foot long by 10.5-foot high tapestry portrays the cultural legacies of Canada’s First Peoples and of every nation in the world.

Here were some of my favorite different ones.

This one is made out of seal skin, the amount of time cutting the fur for the drawings part must have been very time consuming.

This one has the most wonderful bead work on elk leather background,

You can spot the West Coast Native style in this one so clearly..

This is just a very tiny sample of the hundreds of patches in the show..

    OhMyGod, these are SO beautiful! Can you imagine all of the work involved in these? Loving the rainbow effect and the embroidery in the top square (Australia).
