wandering on a road to an unknown destination
self actualization in a discovery mode

This the is quilt that was accepted into Houston's Festival Gallery of Art Quilts competition, Memories of My Childhood. My quilt's title is "Army Brat" . I grew up living 20 places in 16 years as a military dependant. The first thing that came into my mind upon reading the theme of this competition was moving vans, displacement, and my father's recommendation that I bloom where I was planted (for the moment). This picture was taken by a friend that was fortunate enough to attend the show and kind enough to send me a picture of it hanging with the ribbon. I used multiple techniques and like the piece because of the personal connection that I have to it.
