Statement: In 2011 after I completed The Princess of Weaving I, I decided to create a series of quilts based on the idea of woven bamboo.

At one point I was ready to give up, but my husband encouraged me to continue, insisting that it was worth finishing. With a combination of machine and hand applique I finally succeeded in achieving what I had originally imagined. Using a sarong and a scarf which I had bought in Thailand, I struggled to make it work. I have strong memories...
