Siddi patchwork originated in India and was brought to Africa where it became known as Kawandi 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.
In this class, you will make a small, table mat sized sample either by hand or machine by your preference ,to learn the technique. The quilts are typically very colorful and scrappy being made to use up and recycle salvaged fabric scraps. The kit will include a grab bag of scraps in a variety of colors for the project.
