This is my second Saree Quilt. This is the post. , I did sometime ago about my first such quilt.
My mother had collected her saree cut-offs over the last couple of years and handed me the bundle when I visited her last December. She is very pleased that I am making use of these odds and ends and ......
.... I am excited to have all these lovely cotton pieces with pretty prints and colours.
So here is the beginning..................
I have cut them in to roughly 15x15 inches squares. Where there was not enough material for one whole square I pieced several to make enough. I have not pieced them exact corner to corner like the modern quilts. I would like it have a more of a rustic look.
I am waiting to find batting and suitable backing material, so I can start stitching.
But, you may have to wait for awhile to see the end result, as it will be all hand stitched. Last one I think, took almost an year to be completed.
...here is myself in a saree ... :) . . p.s. this was taken few years ago.
I did these crochet hearts couple of weeks ago for valentine, but was unable to post them as I had problems with my internet connection. Finally, I manged to fix it.
Thank you for taking your time today to stop by,
till next time,
