Bangkok. This is Scottie

"Scottie" is a square and special quilt, for Seth's 2012 quilt and will soon be transported from Bangkok to his home in Chiang Mai by his mom, Barbara Franklin, a long-standing friend.  Seth had a long and complicated operation in the USA recently, around his jaw and tongue area.

Lusaka: Mundawanga

Here are two views of a quilt titled MUNDAWANGA, which is the name of the zoo just outside Lusaka in Zambia, our residence for four years.  We used their playground to take Pema and her friends to use the swings and other kid facilities.  It is on the road going to all points south including Chirundu, the border with Zimbabwe, and also to Victoria Falls at Livingstone town. 
I had wished to make an African-inspired quilt for a long time now, and have just finished  binding this one, and soon to be washed.
