“Quilty” . . .
What would you do with an old quilt that was made by your grandmother??
The boro concept project has given me a new perspective on family heirloom objects . . . should they be stored or displayed? OR, should they be reused, that is, reconfigured and used as utilitarian objects in a contemporary setting?
I decided to use the haori-style coat pattern and make a boro that could be worn in the winter . . . it is mid-thigh in length and resembles an old Japanese sleeping kimono.
A collar and seam binding will be added . . .
