Dana Jones, a former editor of Quilters Newsletter magazine, will share the story of the quilts and quiltmakers of Caohagan Island, a 13-acre tropical paradise in the central Philippines. Of 600 residents of the island, more than 100 are quiltmakers. Dana will share images of the quilts and life on the island along with a mini trunk show that will include some of the quilts exhibited at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, during the summer of 2015. Each handmade quilt is a unique design that reflects the colors and flora and fauna of the island, made from fabrics produced in the Philippines and incorporating piecing and appliqué. You can purchase a signed copy of Dana’s book, Pagtinabangay: The Quilts and Quiltmakers of Caohagan Island. She will also have quilts from the island available for purchase with proceeds going back to the quiltmakers.
