Above is a painting of my quilt African Pots by Ron Harwood of Ailsa Craig, together with a picture of the original quilt that it depicts.  It is hanging in Ailsa Craig Park, together with a painting of a Russian quilt from the Russian exhibition held in Ailsa Craig in 2007.

The plan is to have one quilt from each international exhibition painted and on permanent display.

After Garnet and Suzanne, organizers of our 2008 exhibition in Canada, relocated to London, Ontario, where our 2013 exhibition will be held, the local townsfolk in Ailsa Craig decided to continue the tradition ofinternational quilt exhibitions which Garnet had begun. To commemorate each country exhibiting, a painting will be displayed in the Park.
