Mended World, the second panel of the Manitoulin Circle Project was installed in Little Current United Church sanctuary yesterday. This is a really heavy quilt. The amount of thread in the many seams and in the dense quilting adds to the natural weight of recycled linen damask table cloths that are the main fabric. We've invented a canvas sleeve that is attached only to the top edge of the quilt so that it doesn't pull on itself. It's then hung 6 inches out from the wall from brackets. The natural light through the church windows makes it difficult to get a good photo of this intimate minimalist art work. Thanks again to my husband, Ned, for the time he's given to the project. Meanwhile, work was being done on the third and fourth panels in the church hall. All welcome.
