The main fabric in my femedtech quilt square is cut from an organic cotton bag from a store called Maiwa in Vancouver Canada. In Cantonese and Mandarin maiwa is a word used to name the language through which art speaks. Maiwa: beautiful language. The fabric is organic cotton dyed in traditional block printing techniques. I like the rich dark blue and the way flowers weave their way through it each with a small bloom of orange illumination, like stars in an inky night. The fabric is double sided and as I worked with it I thought of it like a duvet cocoon inside which one could nestle. Pinned to the centre of the fabric is a big red heart, velvety and trimmed with gold thread. The work of femedtech requires a big heart and I give heartfelt thanks to all who are engaged in it. I hope the femedtech quilt inspires the hearts of others. Thank you for letting me be a part of it.
