November is come and gone too quickly. And it ended with revealing our last challenge with Latitudequilts, Escape. At first glance, this was an interesting theme. But, when I started working with it, I had problems how to solve it as a quilt. I decided to go abstract, focusing on this:
Escape = an act of breaking free from confinement or control.
We live in a world where, in certain environments, being «out of the box» is not always a good thing. You have to fit in. So, I’ve tried to show this by breaking it all down to squares – in rows – with military precision, except for the one escaping and blooming. Because these people are sometimes regarded like a weed, like a dandelion. They are strong, beautiful, full of colour, they have freed themselves from the rules of the garden and pop up wherever they want!
