First Nations textile art

Have just returned from a trip to Canada and visited, among other places, the Lil’Wat Cultural Centre in Whistler where there was some amazing woven textile work displayed throughout the centre. Certainly an inspiration !!!

Patchwork in Canada

During my travels in Canada I spotted various items of patchwork in heritage centres and museums that I couldn’t resist taking photos of.

This wonderful wall hanging was on display in the Whistler Public Library. My favourite combination – libraries and quilts!

Also in Whistler were these lovely canvas and patchwork storage baskets/ bags. Spotted at the Farmers’ market near our hotel on an extremely hot day.

The following items were in the Railway Heritage museum in Valemount. Not only quilts but a wonderful rug in the same style as Geordie clippy mats but with a lot of extra flair.
