Description: 

Mary Lee Bendolph explains, “The materials I use is mostly old material. People loved their pants or dresses, and they have worn out or don’t fit anymore. I make quilts out of it because I hate throwing away things, because somebody can use things that people throw away. People are so wasteful now. It hurts me to see people waste up things. Everything you throw way, it can be used and make something beautiful out of it.”
