Quilt Description: Created with materials usually sent to the landfill in an effort to reduce my impact on the planet. Depicts loss of wildlife and eventual death of the ecosystem as trash clogs up waterways.

Materials: Cotton fabrics, plastic trash bags, beads, trash, toothbrush, empty spool, cardboard, candy wrappers, mesh onion bag, metal screw, etc.
