2016 Summer Quilt Show- Inuvik Quilting Guild

2016 marked the 10th anniversary of the Inuvik Quilting Guild which also meant the 10th year we had a creative challenge project and a summer quilt show. There is only one approach under these circumstances and that is; Go Big or Go Home! And so we went really big and took on a huge challenge.

In Inuvik lives Kristian Binder who is a local photographer and has an amazing way of capturing the character and beauty of Inuvik and its landscapes. He was generous enough to allow the Inuvik Quilting Guild to use his images and turn them into giant quilted triptychs. So amazing. 21 quilters participated in this challenge and the quilts have been shown at the 2016 Great Northern Arts Festival, at local government offices and soon to travel to the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife for a community display. Huge thank you's to Eighty One Images for partnering with the Guild on this project.
