This is a Quechua community quilt which was made for a Molloy College alumna after they had assisted in the community hospital following the massive Earthquake which devastated Ecuador. As a gesture of thanks, the community created this quilt with a representation of the alumna and the work they had done in the community. The entire quilt was handmade from cotton, stuffed with alpaca coat and features the number 302 on the back left side in permanent marker.
50 X 0.8 X 47.4
All measurements were taken in centimeters. Measurements are listed as “length by width by height” or “height by diameter” unless otherwise noted.
