The article narrates how quilters Senani Garuthara and Marie diPrimo helped Sri Lankan women whose only profit comes from their appliequéd traditional designs on muslin blocks. During a vacation in the country, Garuthara brought back several appliequéd blocks made by a group of women to her friend diPrimo. DiPrimo used the blocks to design a quilt which she used for her classes. Garuthara set up a Web site intended for the sale of the traditional blocks in which proceeds were directed to the craftswomen.
