I also exhibited in For the Love of Gaia sponsored by Luana Rubin of E Quilters at Festival. You can see more pieces in the short virtual tour and webinar by the International Quilt Museum, Nebraska. Featured is my piece, The Downs, Wind Torn alongside Betty Busby's Fire in the Sky. The event was superbly organised.
