Kawandi Class

Kawandi quilts are traditional in India, brought to the area from Africa. It's also known as Siddi quilting. Traditionally, it is made with scraps from clothing or bedding. We will teach you how to do this hand-stitched, quilt as you go method of quilting.

Supplies needed:
--1- 20"x20" or 22x22" square (or a fat quarter)of lightweight fabric for quilt back. Batiks are harder to sew through, so I recommend regular fabric.
--1 piece of thin batting that is 1" smaller than your backing
--Colorful, lightweight various scraps of fabric.
--12 weight thread for stitching (called Spagetti Thread, we sell it)
--neutral colored regular thread for basting prior to class
--fabric scissors
--straight pins
--A needle for hand stitching, either embroidery or sashiko

**Important prep for first class: please place the batting on the wrong side of your backing fabric. Fold the edges over the batting and hand-baste the folded edges with 1/2" long basting stitches.
