This is a whole cloth quilt, the kind that has been rare across my quilting career. While I lot of people start with whole cloth quilts, I didnt. I always try to push my boundaries trying to see if I can an additional quilting element to the quilt: be it a quilt block or applique or something else!
To be frank, I didn’t have much expectation from this when I set out to make it.

However, it turned out to be a stunner. I haven’t been able to do justice to it in terms of photography. It looks so beautiful in real life that my house help refused to part with it after it was complete…she is of the opinion that we should keep it and let my ‘lil one use an extra quilt along with his own …ha ha ha
