Mod Kantha Quilt

Naomi is off to university in a couple of weeks, so I made her this little kantha stitched quilt.


The design is based on one in an old issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine, I added in a couple of solid colours and only did the kantha stitching on the solid blocks, and made it a block bigger in both directions.
The prints are from Robert Kaufmann's Mod Tex range and the inner layers and backing are flannel (I used vintage flannel sheets for the inside layers)
Now if only the blanket I was trying to crochet for her would grow a little faster. At this rate she'll be lucky to get it for Christmas...

University! Good luck. It seems like only yesterday I was waving my little brother off to uni and now I'm older than my parents were at the time!
Lovely quilt for her to take as a memento. What is she studying? And where?

As I have said before, Naomi is one lucky girl. The quilt is very attractive and nicely stitched.

Lovely quilt you made for your daughter.
Our eldest daughter went back to Uni yesterday after a couple of months of summer job and lots of fun with her friends.
