Recycled Plastic card quilt
Been working on this for a while now. Its made out of recycled credit cards, hotel key cards and gift cards. The frame is a mattress spring from my kids crib which we bought 30 years ago. It has been used as a pea trellis in the garden. I cut the cards in half so they would fit into the spaces. Drilled holes in each end and wired them to the frame. Took me a while because my fingers would get raw from twisting the wire. I just love it!
I added a copper pipe frame to it to make it easier to handle
so I could enter it into the Marin County Fair.
Here it is on display at the Marin County Fair
I named it "Same as it ever was"
And here in the center is my other recycled plastic piece I entered.
This ones called "And she could hear the highway breathing"
