The right side photos….The dot at the top is kantha filling stitch. The crown flower is filled with kantha booti variation where the petal is done in two colours.
At the bottom…The tear-drop shape within the calyx and also the beaks, are done in kantha filling stitch.
The stem of the calyx base – kantha stitch
The birds – paichano or whipped running stitch.
The red bands within the birds – Bejod or non aligned kantha.
My silk for the 3rd is ready to have the freezer paper and pattern aligned for transferring the pattern, then stitching. Hopefully I will get it started over the weekend. I am really looking forward to it.
Kantha stitching is so relaxing and such fun to see develop.
