    (Bringing this up from last thread since I posted it very late.)

    Amazing work — look at the photos if you can access the WaPo story. I changed “quilts” to “textile art” when I tweeted this because women’s textile art is so often downgraded to the merely utilitarian.

    As the immigration debate rages, she quietly counts the dead along the border — and memorializes them with quilts

    [Jody] Ipsen has dedicated countless hours to recognizing and remembering those people who died seeking a better life. She’s the founder of the Migrant Quilt Project, an organization that makes a quilt each year with volunteers who stitch the names of the deceased. The 17 quilts that have so far been stitched have incorporated scraps of clothing found in desert migrant camps.

    In 2007, Ipsen, now 48, came up with The Migrant Quilt Project and the idea to use scraps of clothing found in the migrant camps to memorialize those who had died. She and other volunteers decided to make a quilt each year, and also for each year going back to 2000, when the medical examiner first began recording the number of migrant deaths.

    quilters never use clothing that came directly from deceased migrants …. “It’s heartbreaking to cut the embroidered word ‘baby’ from a piece of clothing and insert it into a quilt block,” Laird said. “The dead were so hopeful of a better existence, fleeing from impossible circumstances. I am honored to embroider their names.”
