Journey

Representational art quilt of Antarctic scene

2013
36″ x 39.5″

Fused appliqué art quilt with machine quilting

The scene depicted in this fiber art quilt occurred on a Christmas Eve in Antarctica. Some volunteers who had been restoring a deserted hut were stranded by an influx of ice into a previously open waterway. The ship that I was traveling upon had the ability to cut through much of the ice. We then sent two Zodiacs up a channel to pick up the volunteers and transported them to Port Lockroy to spend Christmas with friends.
