My Kantha Quilt jacket is just about finished. I could actually wear it at this point, but I would like to add pockets. As much as I sometimes try to convince myself that I don't need pockets, I always end up looking for them ;) The jacket is completely reversible as you can see below. I was especially please with how the batik print blended with the pattern in the quilt.
Sew News pattern. The collar is quite large.
I was asked about the size of my quilt Here's a link to a quilt that is the same size that I purchased, https://www.etsy.com/listing/153329073/tiwn-quilt-blue-ikat-kantha-quilt?ref=shop_home_active_3
My quilt measured out to be approximately 2 1/2 yards long by a little less than 60" wide.
I was also asked about the condition of the quilt. The materials that were used for this quilt seem to be new, so the fabric was in good shape. I did not have to worry about holes are worn areas. But remember, this is a handmade item, so there are imperfections. There are areas where the stitching has not been knotted, or the thread ends have not been cut. None of the imperfections were and issue for me as I rather like the fact that it's handmade and not perfect.
this post to see the changes that I made to the sleeve.
