I found this bit of Laotian or Hmong traditional quilt at a yard sale today. It is a bit smaller than a placemat, and a wee bit tattered, but I love it! The cutwork, and stitching, are so very fine.

It reminds me of the quilt work lining the halls as I wound my way to Marshfield Clinic's Oncology Department. It was an amazingly peaceful walk, to a place that gave me much hope.

I love the design motifs and the sewing looks meticulously done -a beautiful piece of art.

And Marshfield Clinic is a place a excellence- I'm retired from working in the medical field and my first job offer was at the Marshfield Clinic.  Didn't end of working there but know of their great reputation.

It reminds me of very fine reverse applique.

Cari, I believe that is the process. Three layers of fabric. Is that the same for reverse applique?

Chaly, I was referred to Marshfield by a neighbor for a second opinion in '97. Very well cared for, and listened to. I was a part of my medical team, not the subject of the team. My oncologist was top notch!

When I was a kid we lived in Ladysmith. I can remember when people were really sick they were transferred to Marshfield hospital. My dad would go there and visit people. It’s long had a reputation.
