"Twin or oversize-throw quilt. Made from cotton, silk and linen sourced in Morocco, USA, Cambodia and Laos. Features threadbare sarongs found in a torn-down house in Laos; Cavern Home Textiles, 'Arrow Stripe' linen print, and purple hand-dyed desert caftan from Morocco. Heavily patched with silk scraps and embroidered bee stings. Inspired by Paul Bowles' The Sheltering Sky."

Pauline Boyd is a Los Angeles-based textile artist and designer who creates primarily freestyle quilts. She is the founder of Counterpane, a line of home goods and quilted works. Each Counterpane quilt is one of a kind and crafted using a self-taught, folk-based improvisational style. Pauline builds each quilt from found and repurposed textiles, with an emphasis on handmade or handwoven piecework. http://counterpanehandmade.com/
