Overall, I am pleased with the outcome of our quilt although I feel that we didn’t utilize our time as efficiently as we could have. We also could have included additional materials and embellished more into the quilt itself but perhaps we could return to our piece in the future. The quote we included was especially effective in subverting the nature of the blanket and gave a sense of irony to the installation. The welcome home mat also served a similar purpose. As said by Angus, our piece could have been more politically focused which would have given an extra layer of meaning to our quilt but this could be made possible in the future.
Working with Ellie and Hazel was a really rewarding experience as I felt all our ideas were valued equally and we all shared similar opinions. I feel that working collaboratively again with them will help develop my practice and I could perhaps help in the development of theirs.
