This quilt is made from scarf that was block-printed by hand in Mundra, India, a small port city in the Kutch region. Artisans there specialize in batik block-printing, which means the block is dipped into hot wax then stamped onto the fabric. After dyeing, the fabric is boiled to remove the wax. lt didn’t get much mileage as a scarf, so I cut it up and remixed it with other fabric from my scrap stash. I like it much more as a quilt, if I do say so myself. The decorative tassels along edges use up all the scraps so no material was wasted.
