Patch Up the Planet

Quilt artist Carol Bridges is donating a full 50% of the purchase price of her wonderful work to the Community Kitchen of Monroe County.

Here she writes about her quilting:

There is a long tradition of quilters making "something out of nothing." We use whatever scraps of cloth we have on hand to create a work of comfort and beauty. It was primarily women who learned to excel in the use of cloth and thread to create whatever was needed by their families.

Though there were master cloth makers of all kinds prior to technology, making things by hand later became something only the poor people did. Then, after machine work showed its dull side (lower quality, poor working conditions, etc.), hand work again rose up as an art form.
