Judy Leslie’s award-winning quilt Winds of Time is one of several on exhibit during a show by the Fraser Valley Quilters’ Guild on now at the Surrey Art Gallery.

A stitch in time

Quilt guild shows off its members’ talents at Surrey Art Gallery.

Fraser Valley Quilters’ Guild returns to the Surrey Art Gallery with a new exhibition of traditional and contemporary quilts.

Visitors will see intricately crafted quilts that incorporate embroidery, appliqué, thread painting, needle punch, beading, use of overlay fabrics, hand painted elements, and hand-dyed fabric.

The cultural influences incorporated into many of the works demonstrate the quilters’ knowledge of the history of quilting; other works show innovation and experimentation.

The exhibit is on display now and continues to Feb. 9.

Themes range from natural images to creative explorations of pattern and complex abstractions. The exhibition features John Weir’s Something Different This Way Comes, a large-scale complex quilt employing New York Beauty, SunCompass, and Solar Wheels blocks along with computer programmed embroidery; and Judy Leslie’s autumn-themed composition Winds of Time, which was awarded Best Quilt of Canada in 2012 at the World Quilt Show. The exhibit also includes examples of the guild’s preemie quilts, a special part of their community work.

Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. Phone 604-501-5566 or check  www.surrey.ca/artgallery for further details.
