ANKURI (In Dehradun, India)

Here is a "draft" of a design for hand-sewn children's quilts.  A group of women is being organized for training in making quilts in July/August.
The colors will depend on fabrics available in the local market.The outer border is of plain solid fabric.  The inner border will be pieced: half square triangles (as shown), rail squares, quarter square triangles, flying geese and others.  The center design will come from inspirations around Dehradun's environment, such as the "hills" shown above. An elephant appliqué appears on the right lower side, representing a "logo" for quilts made at Ankuri, an NGO social enterprise based in Dehradun, Uttarakhand State in India.
