Letter K

Hi Everyone!
Tuesday again already! Hope you have all had a good week. Have you made yourself a cuppa, so you can sit comfortably and look at this weeks tags?

K is for Kantha 


Kantha is an embroidery stitch from the Bengal region in India. It is based on simple running stitch and stitched into layers of fabric for a quilted effect. 
I used an Indian wooden stamp for my design and copied the pattern.

I have posted some information about Kantha quilting on my blog to add some background to the tag.

  2. Hi Mo, if you double click on the photo it should come up larger. It is a macro photo so close detail! I will put a link on my blog where you can find info about Kantha too.
