This is the 6th installment in the Viewpoints9 “Living Planet” series. Our word assignment: IRREVERSIBLE.
You can’t un-cut a quilt. I use the holes in this quilt to represent extinct species. They leave an empty space in the ecosystem, which cannot be fixed. Other species are in danger of disappearing (represented by the black fabric shapes). Their absence causes a ripple effect, changing the lives of other animals, plants and people as well.
Technical details: Hand-dyed and commercial fabric, black acrylic tulle (sewn into the cutout shapes)
Hand-guided machine quilting
Raw edge applique
