Kantha Work

Lotus Pond

Another kantha embroidery piece I just completed. I used three layers of white voile, tacked in place and drew the pattern.


To create rippling effect of water,I used two different shades of blue and a purple and did them in a kind of an overlapped shells to match the lotus leaf. Also, added yellow at the top to represent sunshine.




The bottom of the pond is in a shade of aqua.






The finished piece is about 8x14 inches and it took about two months.

Do you like my imaginary pond?
