Salama Mumma and Pam's Siddi Quilt 1st Edition


Instructor: Pam Holland

Traditionally, Siddi quilts are created for family members and used as sleeping mattresses in warm weather or as covers during the cool, damp monsoon season.  Large quilts come in sizes based on one, tow or more family members.  A quilt for three or more persons is regarded as auspicious, as it implies a growing family with children.  in addition there are small, baby sized quilts that are often decorated with brightly colored patches (tikeli).  Kawandi are normally made of pieces of cloth from old, worn-out clothing gathered together by the quilters from family, friends or from items purchased at the local used-clothing markets.
