Kantha 0803

Approx 52"x79"

More the size of a lap quilt.  I see this kantha hanging on the wall in the nursery of the luckiest baby, folded at the foot of a twin bed - or, if you dare cut it ..... it would make a spectacular piece of upholstery.  My photographs don't do it justice.  It's perfection.    The kantha stitches are impeccable and vary between white, yellow, and red.  Pink, green, and yellow embroidery details run alongside the stitches, creating a beautiful geometric pattern on the blue plaid reverse.  This one is a conversation starter for any textile fanatic.  In addition to the price on this one, I'd love to ask that you show me how you work it into your space.

Kantha comes from the Sanskrit word meaning rag. Saris or fabric remnants layered & bound with a running stitch.

The practice began in Bangladesh & India. Many makers believe the blankets provided protection from harm.
