Vintage Indian Quilts

As you know I do love bright colour and bold patterns and so these vintage Indian quilts are just up my street. They are antique saris that are pieced together and then hand embroidered with running stitch, the amount of work that goes into creating them is just amazing. They’ve been popular for a while already but I love that they are now been used in different ways as opposed to just the traditional bedspread or throw. The Future Perfect sells these fun ottomans created by Hay and Pezula Interiors are reupholstering French style chairs in these quilts too. I still actually need one for my bed though! So what do you all think of these quilts? Are you a fan? Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
