i made some indian kantha quilts the last time

dear friends,the last year i made myself some kantha quilts,it is like they make quilts in india,mainly bengal,they have no batting but thousands of quiltstitches all over, if it is very hot outside,they are very useful to cover you in bed because they are 100%cotton and not so thick as a quilt would be.the second ,third and the last one i made of second hand shop fabrics,the thread i used was cotton thread almost like pearlcotton 8 but without "pearl".they are all sewn by hand, have a nice rest of the week,susi
