Old into New

Made for the Carrefour European Quiltshow 2013.

The theme this year is "Distortion"

Earlier this year I took photographs in Dresden, Germany, of the distorted
reflection of the old houses in a new glass clad office building.

I made a mastercopy from the photographs enlarged to 1 meter square.

Using mainly my own hand dyed fabrics, I fused the shapes and then stitched it down.

Quilting is done mainly in the ditch and followed the distorted lines.

Photographs needed to be send in for the competition selection and after a few weeks
my piece and 32 other were selected out of a total of well over a hundred

Quilt will tour for 12 month visiting Moscow (Russia), Vicenza (Italy), Paducah (United-States), Johannesburg (South Africa) and Denmark.

Size: 100 x 100 cm
