Excellent kantha stitching holds this midweight quilt together. I love pieces with darker, printed sides to use as picnic blankets, or for outdoor entertaining. The shades of blue are deep in this kantha. A khaki background with navy details and coral tropical flowers are on one side with a reverse side showing plaids made up of greens, khaki, and blues. This is a piece that will become softer and more pliable with washings.
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.
