Time Travel

If you've been reading my blog for a loooonnnngggg time, you may possibly have seen this before. It's called "Eclipse", and I made it in early 2006. It was the first totally fused quilt that I ever made, and it was intended to be entered into the Dunedin mini-symposium exhibition, where works had to reflect items from the Otago Museum. Of course, I didn't make it to the symposium due to the Broken Ankle saga.

In this work, the unusually shaped objects are based on Melanesian tortoiseshell combs that were in the museum's South Sea Islands section.

This wallanging is still unquilted, but I've decided to complete it as my next quilting project.

More blasts from the past will be coming soon!

I remeber it Shirley and your ankle accident. I never ask about it these days. Is it fully recovered now?
