You are riding a bicycle on dirt roads around hundreds of temples built between the 11th and 13th century. It's in Bagan (Pagan) in Myanmar. Some areas have desert-like conditions and others are grassy areas. The Irrawaddy River runs nearby. Some of the temples are piles of rubble and others almost completely preserved. (It's also very hot and you buy sodas frequently from locals stationed among the ruins.) But it is a great couple of days.
The metal adornments give the feel of three dimensions like the towers of the temples and the combinations of sheer fabrics in places and fibers in others give the feel of the sandy, bumpy paths.
This quilt is an abstract interpretation of my memories of the maze of paths. It includes some photos I took there. This is one of those places that is on many travelers' bucket lists.
Materials: Commercial cotton fabrics, sheer fabrics, tulle, image transfers, beads, metal disks, stamped fabric, trims
Processes: fused, machine-sewn, machine-quilted, hand-embroidered

The wooden hanger shown in the photo is not included. Sorry.
