Exhibition History
Although this small quilt is included in the Manitoulin Circle Project, it has two differences.  Rather than hang on the sanctuary walls like the other four large meditation panels,  this piece is intended to hang in front of the pulpit and is called an antipendium in the united church.  Only Judy Martin's hands worked on this piece.

It was installed June 2011 in the Little Current United Church, Manitoulin Island
It won an award for original contemporary design  at 2012 national canadian quilt conference in Halifax
It was part of Quiet Zone at World of Threads festival in Oakville Ontario, November 2012
