World Wide Whispers quilt collective present an international exhibition by 40 quilters from 40 selected countries.
Five original small quilts have inspired a new project entitled ‘Changing Minds Around the World’. Each quilter was asked to share a photograph of their work to inspire the next piece of work, collaborating across the miles. The resulting exhibition will show how an image can be reinterpreted as it passes from one person to the next.
Formed in 2017, the organising group World Wide Whispers was created by four international quilting friends. Their first project Quilting Whispers brought together quilters from five different countries including Scotland, Ireland, Netherlands, USA, and Canada. They created quilts inspired by the ‘whispers’ of a previous quilt, over the period of 12 months. The resulting exhibition was exhibited at Farfield Mill in 2019.
