Kantha Love

Today I thought I would share another of my collections with you. 

Indian Kantha quilts. I love them and at last count have 10 of them (not to mention half a dozen kantha cushions as well!).

I realise this may fall into the “obsession” category and I’m ok with that!!

I use them everywhere in the house, on my sofas, my bed, as a tablecloth, even as curtains although be aware that they fade really really quickly.

The patterns are so pretty, and they’re completely reversible too. 

The vintage ones tend to be patchworks of fabrics on both sides. The modern ones are usually a plain colour on the reverse but still with the traditional hand stitching, usually in two colours.
