The Cloth of Africa

The Cloth of Africa - Only a part of my vast collection of African prints were used in this original exotic design. Coloured beads add emphasis to the circles and ovals. I designed a unique diamond border and machine quilted with cotton and silk thread. Displayed at the American Quilter’s Society show in Paducah, Kentucky in 2005 and at Pacific Northwest Quiltfest, Seattle, 2006.
