"Baby quilt made from cotton, silk, and repurposed poly blend vintage shirt sourced in the USA and Burma. Features kimono silk and silk linings from the Dos Gallos collection, woven Guatemalan tapestry, vintage flowered skirt and my boyfriend's worn-out Levi's chambray shirt. Inspired by the simple apple pattern of an ill-fitting vintage shirt handed down from a friend, and of course the incredible strip quilts of folk artists before me."
