Ah, the exquisite versatility of the Personal Kantha Quilt. In how many ways are they incorporated into my island day? How can such a gorgeous work of handcrafted art be also the ultimate workhorse?
Kantha starts as that extra throw at the foot of my bed which I pull up over night for a bit of extra warmth.
The purple and green one awaits me on the couch to warm my toes as I sip my morning tea.
Then I spread it out onto the lawn for my morning stretches. When I gather all the fruits that had fallen over night, I tie them within to carry them indoors for juicing and dehydrating.
Later, we head to the beach, sometimes just Kantha and me. Her vibrant authenticity is like having a companion. What a gracious invitation to lay down and marvel at the beauty in each stitch and in nature’s glory.
And, for the showstopper, when it is time to leave the beach for a quick stop at the Farmer’s Market before heading home, one good shake and Kantha wraps around perfectly making a wrap, a thing of wearable beauty that actually gets multiple compliments from fellow shoppers who are stopped in their tracks. I smile and say, “Oh, this old thing?"
Layers are quilted by hand have colorful binding + a little appliqué heart sewn in the corner.
These pretty quilts have 6-8 up-cycled layers of sari cotton.
