Africa


The quiltie theme on Unlimited Textiles this month is Africa.

This is my first quiltie - we have to do two.

The background is layers of organza with painted and burnt nappy liners trapped amongst them. Loads of free machine embroidery and then a motif and threads applied.

The motif is my take on a pattern from an African textile.
I got a bit carried away with this motif - it will be appearing on my next quiltie. I made a stamp of it too and stamped the back of the quiltie.
Now off to find other places to stamp it!!

Fantastic colours and motif, bet it feels wonderful too. I'm envious of all the textile work that you do, knowing that my fabric skills are virtually zilch, lol.
