A couple of lovely quilts I'm finishing off at the moment. The top quilt is all about the tradition of Indigo. Indian, African, Japanese, Korean, American and English indigos. Again different sensibilities (and a lot of rinsing to remove excess dye) but the same technique. It's backed in African wax cloth, which when you buy a bolt of, it's the perfect size to back a standard queen quilt!
The second quilt is from clothes and scarves of a different era, combined with some hand-loomed indian cotton. This quilt makes me think of that great (and much watched) tv programme 'The House of Elliot'.
