I grew up in India, I've lived in 3 countries, in 6 different cities before putting down roots in Toronto. I've been quilting since I was 16 - my first project was a Double Irish Chain. Inspired by many awesome sewing blogs, I've been sewing garments since 2006.
When traveling, I've always taken pictures of patterns, mosaic, tile, rangolis - they serve as quilting inspiration. The Global Nomad Quilt Company came about as a way of sharing this inspiration with you.
I blog about the Global Nomad Quilt Company at http://globalnomadquilts.blogspot.com. I blog about garment sewing at http://weekendcrafting.blogspot.com.
It was a long winter, and I comforted myself through it by looking at images of bright rangoli, a folk art from India.
One particular rangoli - this one - called to me, and I pulled out some paper and started drafting it.
I love how the stars link with each other, and I adore the bright pinks, oranges and reds of this quilt. It is so colourful!
This quilt makes me happy every time I look at it!
(If pinks and oranges aren't your favourite colours, the pattern includes a blank colouring chart to help you easily adapt this pattern to your favourite colours.)
