Caohagan is a 13 acre island in the south Philippines, 10 degrees above the equator. When quilting was introduced to the island, the inhabitants were able to increase their standard of living significantly. Their colorful quilts became increasingly popular worldwide and several are on display at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with curator Judy Schwender about the exhibit, "A Small Miracle of a Southern Island: Quilts of Caohagan" on display through October 13.
