Heading home

March has passed quickly with time spent in the lovely company of stitching friends at the Mongolian Quilt Centre in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
Apart from teaching classes about the colour wheel and table runners, product development has been a very creative exercise.
The recycling of silk scraps via crazy patchwork piecing is a hallmark of the centre. Using these patched pieces in new ways is exciting.

Here we see a purse front made in silk. It is backed with cotton, lined and zipper stitched in.
Looking beautiful, useful and ready for the tourist season beginning in earnest in June.
