I honestly have to say that this is my absolute most favorite quilt I've seen on this blog. The colors are my favorites, but the emotions in the whole message are impactful and say alot. Even without the quilt artist's word one can grasp her message here. I agree with another opinion, I could spend hours looking at every little piece of fabric. I'm in love...Thank you to this artist for her hard work and all the hours she lovingly poured into this statement piece of art.

Thank you for this. It makes me cry knowing how they are suffering with the human use of the sea as a garbage dump and how plastics are making their way- large into their stomaches and small bits into their flesh, what we eat. So beautiful and thoughtful is the cry for humans to be humble with the use of our planet.

WOW. I could spend the day in a big easy chair sitting across from this quilt. Each section is filled with color, movement, and fabulous detail.

I LOVE THIS QUILT> It is beautiful, and really captures the feeling of movement. I also love and agree with the message. We have to save our environment if we want to continue to live.

What a beautiful quilt! The movement gives the feel of the ocean through out the whole piece. There is so much detail in this quilt you could spend hours looking at it.
