The other quilt I had in the "Pet Projects" show is my quilt called "Journey to the Big City." I made this piece when I first joined High Fiber Diet for a show called "Journeys".
Even though I grew up in a smallish city (Pocatello, Idaho) I love big cities. If I am going on vacation you can forget the beach, or some fancy resort. Don't expect me to climb a mountain or sleep in a tent. I want a little CULTURE! I want restaurants and art museums and architecture and theater and a nice hotel room, por favor.
When I was looking for the photo of this piece I discovered I still had my original Illustrator design for this piece on my computer. I thought it would be fun to see the two together. Finished quilt above, on the left, Illustrator artwork on the right.
