Title: Journeys 4: Night Flight

Description: I was very anxious about leaving home for a proposed 4-month long trip and made this quilt to deal with the anxiety of being gone so long. I thought about the final stage of my long flight when the plane comes in low over Durban harbour a few minutes before landing. I would be able to see the lights of ships, buildings and streets shimmer on the water. The excitement of seeing that view is almost unbearable. I am almost home.

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

 

Machine pieced, appliquéd and quilted.
