Narda gave me a bagful of handwoven fabric scraps, which I fashioned into a large bed quilt, and one wall hanging. The fabrics are woven at her weaving facility in Acop, just outside Baguio City. These fabrics lend themselves well to quilts: tactile with dyeing by hand. The center design is based on the rosette stained glass round window of St. Mary's Church in Sagada, where we had a joyous occasion to visit with my sisters in June. The colors are those you would find in Cordillera costumes and textiles. Little Boy, the cat, sits by the quilt.

The colors will depend on fabrics available in the local market.The outer border is of plain solid fabric. The inner border will be pieced: half square triangles (as shown), rail squares, quarter square triangles, flying geese and others. The center design will come from inspirations around Dehradun's environment, such as the "hills" shown above. An elephant appliqué appears on the right lower side, representing a "logo" for quilts made at Ankuri, an NGO social enterprise based in Dehradun, Uttarakhand State in India.
