Upcycled Crazy Quilt
Living in a consumer throw-away society, we have an overwhelming supply of trash.
The term “crazy quilting” refers to a kind of patchwork made of pieces of cloth of various colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes. My adaptation uses discarded packaging materials glued to 6"x 6" Masonite panels. Each collage is overlayed with text appropriated from grocery bags printed on thin rice paper and sealed with epoxy resin. The squares are connected randomly.
