Aurifil Artisan Showcase – Kantha Inspired Stitching

Welcome to the next monthly Showcase for our Aurifil Artisans! They were tasked with creating a project inspired by Kaffe Fassett and Kantha stitching using Aurifil 12wt thread. Traditional Kantha involves the use of a running stitch across the full width of the quilt. It is a basic hand stitching technique that is perfect for both beginner and expert quilters and produces a highly artistic result.

We hope that our artisans have inspired you to try your hand at Kantha stitching! Now more than ever is a wonderful time to slow down and work on a bit of meditative hand stitching. ❤


  1. The artisans all created interesting and very different projects with their assignments! Beautiful work!

  2. I have a few colors of 12wt aurifil out right now; trying to decide what color to use for some hand quilting on a table runner. I was thinking I should double it up so it would show better, but these examples look good with a single thread.
