Kieran’s School Quilt

$146.00$281.00

This pattern was created by the children in my nephew Kieran's school as a project to share the ancient tradition of Indian block printing with an American elementary school. What began as a process of selecting a few student designs to be integrated into a quilt resulted in numerous outstanding entries. So much effort and enthusiasm had been put into the entries that eventually forty four were chosen for inclusion.

Description

This pattern was created by the children in my nephew Kieran’s school as a project to share the ancient tradition of Indian block printing with an American elementary school. What began as a process of selecting a few student designs to be integrated into a quilt resulted in numerous outstanding entries. So much effort and enthusiasm had been put into the entries that eventually forty four were chosen for inclusion. In the end, around ninety separate blocks were carved and the designs replicated in wood by our skilled artisans in Jaipur. It was a challenging and unconventional use of the block printing technique, partly because each design could require as many as three separate blocks for the different colors, and partly because it was not a repeat pattern. The project was complex, requiring special training for the block printers and taking six weeks to carve all the blocks.

Each wood block was inked in the traditional way and stamped in bright, contemporary colors. The reverse side is different from the front. The finished quilt, comprised of charming, childlike drawings, has a universal appeal and would be a vivid addition to any child’s bedroom as well as an intriguing throw.
