Nancy did a design called Guatemalan Flag with red and white stripes like an American Flag with the Guatemalan multicolored diamond patters in place of the stars. How far could you remove a pattern or how many ways could you use it and still insinuate it’s unique history or DNA of the culture. By combining the two she was weaving together patterns of Guatemalan and American culture. Nancy imagined it as if a Guatemalan weaver saw an American flag and wanted to weave it her way.
