Kantha Quilts

Aren't these Kantha quilts so pretty? I love how the colors and patterns mix perfectly.  Kantha – literally means, “quilt of recycled cotton rag”  and is traditionally associated with rural women of the Bengal region of India and has a long and distinguished heritage. Made from layers of discarded sari joined by a simple running stitch which, typically produces a wonderful rippled effect in the quilt. Find them here and here.
