Daphne Harwood Continues the Great Storytelling Tradition

Non/Traditional Quilt: Scraps from Urban Source & Me
The Imagination Market Quilt Story by Daphne Harwood is a continuation of her work in the great storytelling tradition. Her quilt series exhibiting in Telling Stories: a visual art exhibition nuances the clash of urban erasure using panelled images as a means of comprehending the transformation caused by an uncontrollable urban development process. It begins with a quilted map of Vancouver pinpointing the location of Imagination Market and in the quilting form transforms to map urban transformation.
Daphne Harwood's Much Depends on This Quilt is a ten quilt series honouring the people and things that make quilt-making possible. This body of work is part of a permanent collection belonging to the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Mass. It was exhibited in Great Quilts, Great Stories (2012).
