Title: "Orange U Glad We Recycle"|
Year Completed: 2009
Quilt Size: 25"w x 23"h
Quilt Description: Created with materials usually sent to the landfill in an effort to reduce my impact on the planet. It was very challenging working with some of these items; can't iron seams, the chip bags can tear when quilting. It is sometimes like learning to quilt all over again, but exciting to develop new techniques & try out new materials. The outer edge was created by knitting together plastic bags, yarn and fabric.
