Seven Create by NOFA

I fully intended posting photos of “Seven Create”, a group project by the Northern Ontario Fibre Artists, but we are now hoping to enter this piece in competitions so have decided to only show some sections from each panels instead.

If you have had any experience with this kind of thing, I would appreciate hearing about it. I do know that for many major U.S. International shows it doesn't matter, and pieces can be shown or entered in several competitions. Please leave a comment.








I designed this project for our group. It includes 7 curvy panels that all fit together when hanging side by side. The whole project measures 12 feet wide by approximately 54” long.

I cut patterns from heavy plastic for each one of us. We also shared some fabrics but other fabrics and any embellishment could be used. The theme was texture in neutrals.

Each person worked on their own piece individually over a period of 2 years, sometimes bringing them in to show progress being made.

It was very exciting to see all the panels hanging together.

See more of the show in these two posts: show photos and opening reception

Happy Quilting,

A wonderful idea for a group project! I do think it is important not to show work that you are planning to enter in a contest. You want your piece to be fresh and new to the juror's and/or judges eyes.

I love the colorway, the stitching, the textures, the embellishments. The whole thing must be fantastic. Good luck.
