Introducing Be Kind Kawandi

Be Kind Kawandi, 32 X 37 inch hand quilted red and white Kawandi quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2022.

After taking a class taught by Aleathia Chisolm at the 2022 Atlanta Quilt Festival to learn the Siddi Kawandi technique and finishing my class sample, I made one in red and white. After all, I have mountains of red and white scraps.

The Kawandi technique requires hand stitching, and the quilt is built from the outside to the middle adding scraps as you go. I find the technique relaxing.
