Title: Journeys 3: Spice Route

Description: I live near the southern tip of Africa, the backdrop to countless sea journeys. Not only has it long been a vital stopping-off point on the route to the East, but is still melting pot East, West and the African North, where shipping lanes and trade routes meet. It is to me still redolent with the smell of sought-after spices, the magic of the East and the mystery of Africa.


Materials: Hand-dyed and commercial cotton, silk, velvet.

 

Machine pieced, appliquéd and quilted.
