Another African Journey

Joyce Nicholls, who makes her home in Newfoundland, Canada's eastern-most province, recently sent me this photo of her completed "African Journey". I love the bright colours again the yellow wall of her bedroom. She tells me that she had been attracted by the brilliance of African fabrics and had been collecting them for some time before she visited our booth at Quilt Canada in St. John's last year. So when she discovered Kitambaa's patterns using these, it was a natural fit. The detail photo of the quilt shows the curving quilting design she chose, a beautiful counterpoint to the straight lines and angular lines of the strip-piecing and flying geese. Congratulations, Joyce, on a beautifully exectued quilt!
