Clever re-use of wool khaki uniforms and military blankets| enlivened with vivid orange wool. Sober scraps transformed. Called a utility quilt| it has an artist component thanks to the striking color contrast and color variation of the scrap materials. The orange Nine Patch Diamonds really pop against the great 'abrage'of the khaki| shading that came from varied sources of the scraps.
