Dislocation quilt, just finished

I have just submitted my online entry to the Dislocation Challenge. Dislocation is the theme for this year's Contemporary Quilt Group Challenge.

Here's a detail shot of the quilt, will holding off showing the whole quilt for a while.


I called my piece "In the Street Where I was Lost". When I was researching items on the theme of "Dislocation" I came across an article by Samuel Beckett in which he mentioned cultural dislocation, and being lost in the street of places that he used to know. So I was inspired by that idea when coming up with my quilt idea.

Still have to add a sleeve and label, but that won't take too long.

Now I have to go and make the sample of the quilt to send off as part of the jurying process.
