Brushstrokes: New River is a piece about how water reclamation and conservation efforts by both the government and population bordering the river have proven successful in restoring this beautiful river. By joining forces to clean the river and regulate runoff, this once contaminated river has been pulled back from the brink of disaster to be enjoyed by future generations.

Techniques: Hand dyed fabric, machine pieced, machine quilted
