African quilt

As I haven't posted for over two weeks I am now posting twice in one day! My daughter brought these fabrics back from South Africa some time back for me to make a quilt for them. The fabric is actually from Tanzania. There are two blue panels and two red. I decided to keep them in the panels and not cut them up and have joined them side by side so there is a red side and a blue side, I have placed the wadding in between and am now quilting the design from the blue side. I have used a light weight wadding so it wont be too hot or heavy for them to travel back with. I will post a finished photo when its done.


I have just returned from a lovely week in Devon with all our grandchildren, bringing half of them and their parents back with me. Life was hectic but fun. They are such good pals and really love each other...just like their parents. We had lots of lovely walks and caught up with family and friends. Our eldest daughter and her husband are missionaries and are over in the UK 'till July 14th speaking at churches and on the radio about their work in South Africa.
