The exhibit features a variety of colourful quilts hung on display throughout the gallery. 

According to Peace Gallery North curator Jacqueline Benedetto, Von Hollen is a dedicated, fast worker who uses an industrial sewing machine to create her pieces. 

“She really flies through these quilts and is able to get one done in a fairly small amount of time compared to what the standard might be for quilting,” said Benedetto

The majority of quilts on display are for sale as well.
