Quilts for Quest I

Here is a summary of the pieces I have made on the theme of Quest... I seem to be looking for something...

A Day at the Race
The Yukon River Quest begins with a mass start. One has to duck between other canoes and kayaks without causing interference yourself. There is no time to notice much more than glimpses of other boats.

By the time you get to Lake LaBarge, the crowd of canoes has thinned out considerably. And hopefully there won't be wind and waves.

The Yukon River Quest is an ultra-marathon race. Not only is it a difficult race physically, it's also difficult psychologically. Teams often have a tough time staying friendly during the race. This piece illustrates the stresses that usually come with the race. Adapted from a photo on the cover of the Whitehorse Star in June 2015.
