beautiful post.
quilts... no matter their country of origin... are stories. some have a meaning, some have a mystery... all have a magical healing quality that can comfort you.


Charlotte, thank you for posting so often! Love the colorful photos, and today's was a mini quilt lesson--always something to learn in our big world. Carol


I've always loved kantha quilts...something about those parallel lines of hand stitching on the ethereal sari prints. Your blue and orange piece is especially lovely.


Another lovely post. I especially liked your comparison of the feel of the Kantha quilts to the soft arms of a baby or grandmother. Very nice.


I love this post Charlotte, I felt like I was there with you, opening the boxes of precious quilts. And I'd never heard of Kantha quilts before and look forward to learning more about them. Thank you! :)

These quilts are absolutely beautiful and I love the sense of history in them. Quilts made from vintage materials make so much sense and I find them very appealing. Thanks for sharing them!

Wow, those quilts are absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing about them!


Thank you for sharing these beautiful quilts with mother was a quilter and your post brought back wonderful memories.


It's a craft that gives so much of the maker's time and attention, isn't it? With so much time spent making those little stitches, those fibers must be positively steeped in the craftswoman's consciousness :)
