The quilt that sparked Mata!
One of my favorite things about living in India was having a tailor, a lovely man named Atulbhai. He could quickly and easily whip up any shirt or dress I could doodle with whatever fabric I found. I saved all the leftover scraps from these custom clothes and soon friends started saving them for me, too.
This quilt is made from those scraps. All the fabric was block-printed by hand and colored with plant-based natural dyes in Kutch, India where I was living. The three chestnut brown chevron panels in the middle are from fabric that I block-printed printed myself, using a wax-resist process similar to batik.
