Sewing Day continued
Priscilla also worked on some strips of flying geese that she had made in the past that were orginally intended for a jacket. Now that she's become a quilter, however, she re-assembled the strips for a quilt.
Nancy cut out and sewed together a new jacket. It came from a pattern she was trying for the first time. It turned out great, but I think she's ready to try making a kimono-style jacket next time.
The main fabric is a Lonni Rossi fabric.
Priscilla brought in one her Hmong story quilts that she buys from their makers in Vientiane, Laos. This one depicts the people fleeing the soldiers in China and Vietname and going to the refugee camps -- and from their moving to other countries. See Priscilla's blog for Nov 15 for more story quilts. www.PriscillaKibbee.blogspot.com
