The beautiful art quilts of Heather Lair are on display at the New Iceland Heritage Museum in Gimli, Manitoba, Canada until Sept 1st.

I felt like I was in the midst of greatness being surrounded by Heather’s work.

IMG_3286Being able to view all this work all in one place allowed us to see the progression of her talent over thirty years.

The pieces dated 2013 show some experimenting in painting fabric and random stitching.

Where was she going with her ideas?  We will never know but I wish she were here now to show us.IMG_3285

I’m glad that we own one of Heather’s small pieces called “Celestial Bodies”.
