Kawandi Style Quilting On-Demand Virtual Class
Are you ready to explore making a quilt from the outside in? Join Jen Strauser and explore the art of Kawandi style quilting at your own pace in this on-demand class. Jen will lead you through everything you need to know, from selecting fabrics and tools to finishing your Kawandi style quilt.
What is a Kawandi Quilt?
Kawandi Quilts are a traditional craft practiced by African Diaspora peoples in Western India. Traditional Kawandi are made from recycled saris. They are constructed from the outside in, which makes them a unique change of pace from western quilting traditions. If you love the texture of hand quilting, you will love making Kawandi. It is also a fantastic way to use up your scraps.
In this series of videos I will show you how to get started on your own mini Kawandi style quilt. I will demonstrate the techniques I am familiar with, from beginning with the finished edges, adding decorative pops of color, filling the belly of the Kawandi, and completing your piece with decorative phula.
Over an hour of instructional videos are included, broken down into small portions for easier reference. Specific instructions for four different projects are included (coaster, place mat and baby quilt), along with the option for a bonus project bag pattern. Class includes a feed where participants can ask questions, which is monitored by the teacher.
Skill Level. This class is suitable for beginner level quilters. No experience necessary.
