"Particle Trails"

Our art quilt bee, the Twisted Stitchers, was invited to create 24 x 48" quilts with a Radiation theme. The quilts will be shown at the conference of the International Radiation Association in Geneva from June 21-27, 2014. 

Including mine, I know of seven quilts in the exhibit. 

I based my design off of a stop motion photograph of radioactive particles.

Particle Trails, 24 x 48"

Particle Trails, detail.

I bleached the trail with Sun dishwasher gel on black sateen fabric.

The exhibit will also be shown at the European Patchwork Meeting in Ste. Marie-aux-Mines, France Sept. 16-19, 2014 and at the Prague Patchwork meeting in April 2015.

If anyone gets to visit these venues, I'd love to see a photograph!

Update 6-26-16:
The quilts will be headed home soon.
This is where they've been.
