African Odyssey

This simply pieced quilt has a strong impact due to the vibrant fabric choices.

This quilt was made as a wedding present for our niece. She and her wife like bright, wacky things, so African wax print seemed perfect for them. It took me longer to make than expected and I altered the design as I went along, making it much simpler to ensure I actually finished it! As there was no approaching deadline it dropped down my 'to-do' list too often. I finally presented it to them before their third wedding anniversary and it is much enjoyed.
