(Cancer) "IS RELENTLESS. SO ARE WE" is printed on warp strips going vertical. "HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A REAL INDIAN" is printed on strips going horizontal.
Paper, being stiff is easy to manipulate and weave unlike fabric. I notice it too spreads apart on the edges and weave tighter in the center. I don't know why! Why?

#57. 'Dolly Parton's Christmas Present' 2021.2 58" x 55" Mostly American with some Japanese, Hawaiian, African, Indonesian fabrics, some left over from making Covid-19 masks. NFS. Gifted 2021.3.18.
A podcast hosted by Jad Abumrad led me to Dolly Parton's song 'Coat of Many Colors'. This inspired me to make as traditional a quilt as I could. It's worth listening to 'Dolly Parton's America'.
