Fun ideas & beautiful fabrics.

Wow, thank you so much! Just admired your kantha stitching on IG when I saw your email!! Thank you, thank you and happy stitching!

I knew the Kantha stitch, I have quilted that way for years, calling it big stitch like you said. What I did NOT know was the 2-fabrics-only part of the tech.

I really like the napkin idea!! Something I can teach my grandgirls that will go fast.

Thank YOU!

This is an interesting technique. I wonder if my 'old' hands would be up to this? Your work looks lovely though!

Love projects that you can start and stop. Thanks for sharing

Today, I FINALLY picked up my special thread and needle to begin stitching a little-quilted pillow piece I started a few years back. I took the piece with me to sit and stitch while I'm with my mom as she is now sick in bed at her assisted care apartment. Then, I come home to find your blog on stitching something similar. How I love life! Thank you!

The stitching creates a great texture.


I LOVE Kantha stitching. I've worked it into a couple of quilts now (along with machine quilting). Have fun with yours!


You are inspiring me to get cracking on this process! Love itโœ‚๏ธ


It looks both beautiful and relaxing. Thank you for your inspiration :)

I heard about the Kantha stitching but did not know exactly how it was done. Thanks very much for explaining it so easily.

Nice technique. I think I'll try it!

This is so great! Our guild just had Marianne Burr as our guest speaker and she does a lot of Kantha stitching and I was really taken with it. I think this would be the perfect thing for the panels that I made in the silk screening class! I love the simplicity of it.


Thanks for the tutorial on kantha. I love that style!!


Thank you for sharing your Kantha Stitching! Another great slow stitching technique that I will try very soon.


Love your pillows! This looks like a great "mindless" project for working on between more complicated projects. Thanks!


Thank you for the tutorial! I have a small project that would be great to try Kantha on.

I love the elephants printed on the fabric! Kinda wish it were a stamp I could buy! :) Thanks for the tutorial!


I have found that hand quilting/perle cotton/kantha stitching is swiftly becoming my favorite thing to do. glad im not the only one!

I love the look of this stitching combined with your new fabric line!! I really want to try it. ๐Ÿ˜Š
