Kantha Style Quilt

The May issue of Popular Patchwork Magazine is now out in the UK and the US version “Popular Quilting” will be on the shelves in a few weeks time.


I designed this quilt inspired by the beautifully hand stitched Kantha bed covers from India but using soft coloured fabric strips to represent the stitches running across the quilt. Of course it then had to be hand quilted so I chose various cotton threads in violet, pink, cream, powder blue and green.


Fabrics from Newcastle Studios  including Margos Favorite Shirtings, Fantasy pink, Emma dots and Florence Peto stripes.
