Issue 18 of Love Patchwork and Quilting is out now and it includes this Kantha Throw which is the last in my series of 'stitchy' projects.
I am loving the colour palette on the cover this month and all three of these projects are fabulous, especially Modern Handcrafts genius hexy technique and Julie's gorgeous cushion. And inside you'll find another amazing quilt idea from the ever prolific Lynne.
As with all three of these projects I have produced a hanging heart 'mini make'. This was probably the easiest of the 3 to make. I took this away with me to stitch on our 25th Wedding Anniversary weekend in Copenhagen at the end of November, so it has nice memories attached.
I chose to make the throw all from one line of fabric (very unusual for me), this is Honor Roll by Anna Mara Horner (who I will be actually meeting in person in less than 2 weeks at QuiltCon!!!).
I wanted something big and bold to shine through under all the stitches.
Kantha is a traditional Indian embroidery technique. A bit like Sashiko it was orignally a way of using up old textiles.
