Ralli Quilts are layers of discarded cloth held together with a running stitch, the final complete work used as a decorative covering for beds and/or floors. Though one side is composed as a decorative covering, its often the ‘backside’ that is equally or more fascinating as an abstract composition.

Wonderfully subdued composition of central patterned panel with series of solid colored alternating borders. Central deep maroon panel formed by ‘Bandhani’ or resist dye technique. Reverse side solid black shows intricate stitching. Could be mounted for wall display or placed on floor. A keeper.
