You’ll be transported to a tiny island — just 13 acres — in the central Philippines as you enjoy images and stories of the colorful quilts and the more than 100 quiltmakers of Caohagan Island.
You’ll see photos of more than 50 of these handmade, one-of-a-kind quilts plus be introduced to the unique techniques developed by these quiltmakers whose tools are simply fabric and scissors, needle and thread. Dana spent more than a month on the island, quilted with the residents, went fabric shopping with them on nearby Cebu Island, and snorkeled the reef that surrounds Caohagan. Those who view the quilts come away smiling, inspired by the creativity of these women and men.
Dana Jones is a former editor of Quilters Newsletter magazine and SAQA Journal (Studio Art Quilt Associates). She lives in Colorado where she watches the wild critters as she quilts from her studio that faces Mount Thorodin. Visit her website at https://www.danajonesquilts.com.
