I have finished all my India blocks but it is time to catch you up to date.
Within the city of Ahmedabad, is a residential area in which Kalamkari textiles are produced. This is an age old traditional textile which is very time consuming to produce. As we entered the village this young woman was working on a large piece, coloring in the larger areas with a crude type of brush.
Various portions of the block were painted with Pebeo Setacolor Fabric Paints.
Small black buttons were used for the spots on the horse. The block was densely hand quilted and bound in a metallic red fabric to pick up the color of the flying geese in the framing of the block.
