In 2017, I learned about the bleaching coral reefs and how devastating that is for our ocean environment. Did you know that algae creates about 70% of the oxygen that we breathe? So if you want to continue breathing, all of us need to do something to help save our oceans. In order to actually help make a difference, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Coral Reef Alliance to help save our oceans around the world.
This quilt is part of a show that I created to help spread information about our dying oceans. It features an octopus swimming in the ocean. Octopus was made using reclaimed/scrap fabric that was considered to be unusable by other quilters. Then it was sandwiched, free motion quilted, and finally embellished using secondhand beads.
