Quilting award goes to Brewer

An Abbotsford woman won an award of excellence from a national quilting event

An Abbotsford woman won an award of excellence from a national quilting event.

Karen Brewer was presented with the “Excellence in Workmanship – Domestic Machine Quilting” for a project titled “Space Junk.”

She was selected for the award during the national juried show of the Canadian Quilters’ Association.

Brewer had to first submit her piece, which she completed entirely on her own using a domestic machine, for acceptance into the show and an opportunity to be judged for awards.

Brewer, who received a prize of $1,000, first started the quilt in 2008, but put it aside after having some challenges with the design.

She picked it up again in 2013, taking several more months to complete it.
