Short Track Speed Skating

In 2002 the Winter Olympics were in Utah. I was fascinated by the short track speed skating and of course, Apollo Ono had been training in SLC. I was in need of inspiration for a quilt so I used the short track speed skating for inspiration. I sat and watched Olympics and did hand quilting during advertisements! When it came to putting the borders on I was short on one side by a couple of inches in the corner. Therefore, the corners ended up being carved out, but it mirrors the angles of the short track.

The backing is a dark green semi plain fabric. It was hand quilted from the back.

Finished: Winter 2002
