Weaving the Future - A Mini Quilt Collage

Or church has several member art shows a year. This spring the theme was Earth Day. I had this running around in my head for a while and it was begging to get out.

Scrap fabric, embroidery thread, batting scraps, beads, found objects, repurposed objects, a little paint, glue, starch, and lots of machine stitching.

A woman is gathering in the trash and weaving it, transforming it, into a brighter future.


This is seriously amazing. So beautiful, so much story in the one image. Using the 3 dimensional items to be the trash was inspired and raises the visuals to the next level. I really don’t have the words right now to do it justice but I also couldn’t leave with just “hearting” it.

Someone will be so lucky to showcase this in their home. I hope it is hung on a bright wall with a dedicated light focused on it to frame it and draw every eye that passes.


Love the multimedia-ness of it! Fantastic piece!
