India - Colour and Quilts

We are absolutely loving India - the colours, the fabrics, the quilts, the people. 
the old architecture and the street stalls.

Firstly chairs made with a Kantha Quilts.


Elephant Kantha tablecloth in wayside restaurant.

These are typical street stalls

Quilts and Tablecloths


Sari fabrics

Even road side stalls out in the countryside.

Now for some famous spots - the Taj Mahal

Amber Fort - the whole front of this is packed with applique design ideas.

Safdarjung's Tomb built in 1754 also had lots of applique inspiration.
