The exhibition of Irish quilts and international quilts was held at eight additional venues across Derry from 8 March 2008 until 19 April 2008. There were also two launch events.

The combined exhibition of Irish and international quilts and Chilean arpilleras was the result of a collaboration between Derry City Council Heritage and Museum Services and The Junction with guest cruator Roberta Bacic.
