After folding and clamping, dyeing (synthetic indigo) and washing this is my "collection".

I wanted to share the story behind this child's dress with you. I went to a lecture at the quilt show and the speaker told how during World War II they made silk maps for the pilots. The maps were of the territory the pilots were flying over in case they were shot down they would hopefully find their way out. They made the maps from silk because water would not hurt it, they wouldn't rustle and make noise and they could sew them secretly into their uniform. When the soldiers came home some were sewed into clothes and perhaps quilts?
