In 2018, I began a journey of quilting stories of coastal optimism in Louisiana – stories centered on adaptation and resilience of the people and communities in southern Louisiana. I have the OCEANDOTCOMM event and the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) to thank for the inspiration for this quilt collection.
Each quilt has a summary blog post and video available for a deeper dive into the story represented with fabric and patterns. A YouTube playlist has been created for all the videos of the Stitching Hope quilts. A full virtual gallery for exploration is available in Artsteps: https://bit.ly/stitchinghopetour
