Kantha and Silk

Here are my project from Anna Hergert’s Kantha and Silk classes. As you can see, Kantha quilting, which is a technique that evolved in India, relies on running stitches, lots of them. The arrangement of the stitches and the variety of colors form the pattern. The outlines are done in a backstitch that is very economical with thread.

My first Kantha quilting project, about the size of a mug rug.

My second project, my design, about the size of a mug rug.

My silk project (my design) It’s about the size of a place mat.
