and Peace Quilts
Panels from some of my Events of the Year Quilts
Since 1986 I have been making Events of the Year hangings.
Each quilt portrays 19 events, the 20th panel shows the
year. The hangings measure 216 x 140cms. Each quilt has an accompanying
file of newspaper cuttings.
Year and Peace Quilts have been shown in solo exhibitions at
Quilts UK, England 1996, Irish Linen Centre, Lisburn
Museum 1996, Festival of Quilts, Birmingham
2004, Armagh County Museum 2005; together with
a retrospective show of my work. In 2012 the 26 year quilts were
shown in Tower Museum, Londonderry/Derry Northern
Ireland and Donegal County Museum, High Road, Letterkenny,
