Project Description

I grew up in a suburb of Sydney that was still considered bushland. Full of eucalyptus trees and mysterious creeks  (which were probably sewer outlets) and lots of places for adventurous kids to play. By the time I left that area in my early teens it had been slowly but surely gentrified and fences and gates had become the norm.

This quilt reflects some of the joy I had playing in the bush and watching the changes over the years.
