Recycling

Quilters have been recycling old worn out family garments into quilts for decades. I also like to incorporate our old favorite clothes into my work. This new piece is called "Dancing at Woodstock". She stands 13" tall, her long skirt is my well worn old hippy skirt and her blouse is my Mothers cotton gauze nightgown. I get a kick out seeing what can be done with found and recycled objects.
