Based in charleston, west virginia, the nonprofit cooperative was formed by a group of idealistic young women, including sharon percy rockefeller and florette angel, and their successful designer, dorothy weatherford. Sharon percy rockefeller is the wife of former west virginia senator and governor john d. "Jay" rockefeller iv and daughter of senator charles harting percy the senator from illinois.
Folk art and a renewed interest in traditional crafts and the back-to-the-land movement of the 1960s provided fertile ground as mountain artisans helped to generate a renaissance in quiltmaking. In this example, she used her talent in combining texture and color tonality with just the right scale. I also think dorothy's choice of vertical stripe motifs and a neutral color palette avoided the feeling you were a walking quilt project. One of my favorite winter skirts. And after a close inspection, i can say that no little moth snacked on it.
