RoadTrip1

This piece, titled "Ebby & Augi Drive to Pensacola" is a 6-panel scale version of a 35mm film canister, complete with "film" - which is actually a quilt.

 

I used to live in Hopkinsville, KY which is a really small town in the lower part of the state. My friend Augi & I shared office space, and very frequently on Friday afternoons, we would get a wild hair and decide to leave work at that very moment & drive to the beach (9 hours away.) We'd taken several trips to various beach destinations, and Pensacola was one of our favorites. Augi would always drive, and I would always sleep on the way.

 

When rolled up, the outside reads "Quilt 2010 - 6 exp." This is actually a fully-removable sleeve with a velcro closure.

 

When unrolled, the quilt features select images and pieces inspired by the trip, and measures 12" x 79".

 

The rules of the project were to use 12 fabrics in the front of the quilt, which will be detailed in each panel, but you can see the complete list here: lovebugstudios.blogspot.com/2010/05/road-trip-fabrics-pro....

 

Made in Hainesville, IL.
