My box of goodies at the post office yesterday was my friend Shelly from Prairie Moon Quilts. I had sent her a few tops to get quilted, and inside was my African fabric quilt for my bed! Yippee~~~~~~!!
I found this Circle African Print a month or so ago, and though it was just what this quilt needed for a border. I wanted to keep this quilt simple as the fabrics needed to just "Do their thing." I'm very pleased with it! Finally! I made this quilt top about a year and a half ago! See old post here. It was quite a fun day!
I recently found a whole bunch of new African prints that I had not seen before, so when I wanted this quilt finished I pulled three prints to piece the back. I can't wait to get the binding on it and wash it, the fabrics have some really nice texture to them.
This quilt happened by accident! All these HST's were part of another quilt, and I decided I didn't like the quilt. So I took it apart and then didn't use the HST's in the new quilt, so I quickly sewed them together and I think makes a fun modern looking quilt! Perfect for my living room.
I again used some African fabrics for the backing... Isn't that a GREAT print? I didn't have enough so I pieced in some royal blue to top it off... One more for the binding pile.
I just love stripes... I think it will do well in my house. ;-) Greens blues and reds... perfect! Glad I saved the quilt and gave it new life!
Mmmmm, more stripes! hahah!
Have a great day!
