I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

This is a very special quilt. It shows the famous "gold " temple, Tha Luang, in Vientiane, Laos, begging monks, the famous a Patuxai archway, the Mekong River, and refugees having crossed the river in Thailand leaving the area by bus. I have been purchasing these quilts in Laos for years but have never seen this particular style. The colors are more true on the small photos.



Working in the fields. There is a schoolhouse with a purple roof on the bottom. THESE QUILTS ARE ENTIRELY MADE BY HAND. NOT A SINGLE MACHINE STITCH.



Here you can see the Patuxai Arch, based on French architecture with a local flavor
