Quilters in Bikaner

A friend of mine texts me in the middle of her trip to Bikaner, Rajasthan. I was in the village and the women on one family makes quilts. I thought of you, she says. Here is her only picture with the family and look at the quilts they are sitting on. Aren't they lovely! I need to make a trip sometime and meet these people.

To my right are his sons, Riyaz Ali and Ali Sher. The women of the family were incredibly talented and so warm !
