Look what I got!!

My son Jefferson sent me this beautiful quilt for my birthday. He bought it when he was in Cambodia.





Here is a close up of the lovely hand quilting


He bought it from a women's co-op which provides employment for women in rural areas. You can read about the project here.

And if you get time, read some of the quilter's stories here.
