The group blog of twelve quiltmakers and textile artists scattered around the world in 8 countries and across four continents. Our aim is to create a small quilt every three months.
The theme is chosen by the members in turn.

When the topic was first announced, I knew immediately what I wanted to do. All winter long, I look forward to late February or early March when the first boxes of yellow Alphonso mangoes arrive at our local Asian foods store. For me, fine living is a bowl of ripe mangoes, made even more delicious by the anticipation of their arrival. The background is dupioni silk, printed with a block I bought on one of our Text'art outings to Montreal's archeology museum. The bowl is one of my hand-dyed fabrics, and the mangoes are painted silk.
