Kantha quilts. How gorgeous are they? These bright, cheerful, multi-colored, full of pattern textiles of fun have my full and undivided attention. I'm picturing them thrown across white couches with a mixture of pillows or laying across a bed with big monogrammed shames or as a picnic blanket, on an outdoor patio...

Kantha is a type of embroidery used in India, and these quilts are typically made up of old saris joined together by "kantha" stitches. I love the riot of colors and mixture of patterns you can find on these quilts; plus, I'm a big fan of anything with a history. Kantha quilts can run the gamut in price, but if you're on the hunt, I've found them on ebay, at Shoppe and Furbish, and 6of7 on etsy has a great selection as well, and the companies listed above carry them as well.
