  3. Caroline, Thanks for sharing this video. I had never heard of ladies going door to door for business. I saved my mother's two saris from her last visit. I want to make a summer quilt one day. Such a simple concept. Most quilters in India do either a fat back to front binding or fold under like this woman did. Women take the folded under binding one step further with an embroidery stitch to secure the edges.

  5. In addition to her quilt making skills, I am so impressed with her ability to work crouched on the floor for hours at a time!

    Thank you for sharing!

  9. Hi, beautiful. Which part of India is this from? I didn't know they go door to door to make the quilts. Would love to get a few made, if you will be kind enough to share the details too. Wonderful video on her work.

    Thanks
