Kawandi/Siddi Patchwork

Kawandi Patchwork originated in Africa and was brought to India where it became known as Siddi patchwork. The method is the same for both and is used to make light, summer-weight quilts without batting. Traditionally hand stitched, this technique may be done by machine as well if hand sewing is not your cup of tea, though the hand sewing is remarkably easy and fast, and resembles Boro in technique.

In this class, you will make a small, table mat sized sample either by hand or machine by your preference, to learn the technique. If desired, you can prepare for and tackle a larger project like a baby quilt. These rustic quilts are typically very colorful and scrappy being made to use up and recycle salvaged fabric scraps.
