New Work - Homeward

I've just finished a new piece for the Fibre Art Network show at Quilt Canada in Halifax, NS this May. The theme of the show is "From Away" a uniquely Maritime term that means a person or people that come to the Maritimes form other in the phrase " Susan is a quilter that comes from away".
The quilts will all measure 16" x 36', either portrait or landscape and will be part of a travelling exhibit over the next two years.
My quilt is titled "Homeward" which I've interpreted as lines and curves representing the people who have left their homes to work and live in other locations and countries and are now feeling the call of returning to their roots and their beginnings. The piece is discharged and coloured with dense quilting and additional embellishments.

Good Luck on the show...I really like all the curves and layers of colors.
