Hand dyed (shibori) cottons in indigo, pieced blocks & tied.
This quilt is my dictionary of the shibori patterns, including traditions from India,
Japan, China and Africa. I dyed all but one and a half blocks. One is the remnants of my husband's
shirt which was dyed in Africa and one block I shared with my Taiwanese students as they taught me
the traditional Chinese buttefly pattern.
