Philippines: Baguio City, for Narda

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.
