When I discovered kantha quilts I was immediately drawn to the pieces with fine details, tight stitching, quirky patches and embroidery. The older the blanket the more magical it was to me. I'd find myself wrapping up in my quilts even on the warmest of days. They were a source of comfort, protection. I loved to stare at the threads imagining the story of the maker. Who it was made for? Why those colors and fabrics were chosen? I was hooked.
Coats and jackets made from kanthas and quilts are not a new thing. But, I wanted a shape that still told the story of the blanket one that celebrated the original art and intention of the kantha quilt.
