Recurring motifs 6 -- highways

After taking some time off, I return to my contemplation of shapes and motifs that kept appearing in my daily hand-stitching last year.

For my daily art project in 2001 I made a quilt block to depict the day's events or my studio scraps from the day.  As we did a lot of traveling that year, I decided to design a pieced "highway block" that would be used every time I was on the road.

This year I brought back the highway block for the same purpose.  Sometimes it just sat there.

Once it had a highway marker (Interstate 71).

Sometimes it went through the mountains.
