|Statement about this object||
According to Bounthavy (Vee) Kiatoukaysy, the square flower cloth is typical of the embroidery that made in the refugee camps after the war with the intent to sell. Though the square style is new, this cloth, made by Nyia Kou Lee's mother, has a prominent worm motif, which is a traditional and distinctly Hmong pattern.
The Hmong term for the tuck-and-fold applique process is "chev."
