Going Back is a queen size quilt inspired by revisiting a place I used to live that feels familiar and completely different at the same time. With geometric shapes that tumble across the quilt, a palette borrowed from Bauhaus weaver Gunta Stölzl, and a design that draws you in and overwhelms the senses, who needs art on the wall when you can have it on your bed?

It had been five years since I last visited New York City, the place I called home for nearly seven years. Emerging from the subway in my old neighborhood, walking through the bustling streets of Nolita to see what was still there and what had changed, I was completely overwhelmed by the sights, smells and sounds of the city but fell right in step with the muscle memory that comes with walking the streets of Manhattan all day every day. It was exciting and exhilarating as much as it was exhausting and overwhelming. When I designed this quilt, I wanted to create something that felt old and new, familiar and unfamiliar, neutral and eye-searingly bright, playful and serious, exciting and overwhelming. The feeling of New York, the feeling of a place that used to be home.
