Nakshi Kantha-An art unparallelled

Since we're talking about Kantha work, I thought I'll show you a few pictures of Nakshi Kantha (embroidered quilts) Traditionally, these are never sold . They are only gifted. But now things have changed. The pictures Iam going to post below is from a site I referred to for information about Kantha.This is the link : http://sos-arsenic.net/lovingbengal/quilt.html

Don't fall off from your chair ...Here they come...








These are embroidered quilts where the embroiderer has recorded her life story. I still can't believe that these are made with running stitch as the fundamental stitch. What are the other stitches used for Nakshi Kantha? Does anyone know about those stitches?

Meanwhile,can someone get me one,just one quilt? One quilt is all I ask....

Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa
