African Fabric Quilt
I just finished my African Fabric Quilt! This quilt was so fun to make for several different reasons. To start with, the fabrics used were Christmas gifts from my family. The African type fabrics were from Mike and Erica and I couldn’t wait to use them in a quilt. In addition, my brother and his family sent me this cool assortment of fat quarters that each member of his family picked out and so I used a bunch of those as well! The white fabric actually came from two re-purposed old work shirts of Mike’s. Quite the family affair!
I also really enjoyed making the blocks. The center blocks and inner border blocks came from patterns in Tula Pink’s book. I was really pleased with how those two blocks came out with the fabric I was using. It seemed like the block design matched the fabric in a neat way.
Lastly, I put together my favorite border…my own crazy mixed-up, mash-up. There is nothing better than a chaotic collection of color. I love how it just bellows “COLORFUL BRIGHTNESS!” at you! 🙂 My friend Sondra will be quilting it for me soon so I’ll post one more picture when it’s finished.
