|Dana Jones with her book|
The Visaya word "pagtinabangay" means working together in a
spirit of cooperation for the good of all
Here are a few images of the stunning Caohagan quilts Dana brought to the meeting. The quilts and their images are copyrighted and used with permission.
The colors used by the quiltmakers are those seen on the island and the images reflect everyday life (flowers, trees, animals, fish, birds, people, houses, and activities). About 100 men, women, and children make the distinctive quilts which are sold to benefit the entire community. One third of the island's revenue comes from the sale of the quilts.
