SEW the SEEDS

westVirginia

I’m so excited that I’ve completed my Sew the Seeds star for West Virginia.
After seeing several stars created by some of my favorite embroiderers on Instagram, I looked up the hashtag #esasosflag and #craftism. What were they all doing? Could I be a part of this project? I emailed the project creator and I asked if I could help and if she would accept an art quilt star. She said yes and I got to work.

So, what is the “Sew the Seeds” star project?
“It’s basically a very large US flag with 50 stars for 50 states and 50 species that are somehow linked to the Endangered Species Act.” Each star created by a textile artist represents a state. NC was taken so I chose West Virginia and it’s monarch butterfly. The stripes of the flag will eventually be made up of embroidered quotes about the importance and beauty of nature.
