Colours of Africa















I finished the three quilts I started last weekend at the retreat for Colours of Africa (read their blog here). I only meant to make the elephants in black on a red background, but of course after cutting them out I had the reverse as well and I actually prefer the quilt with the red elephants!



The beads on this quilt are from a necklace I bought in Kenya when I was there in 2002 with my husband (boyfriend at the time). I love it but never wear it; it's just not my style. But the beads go very well with this quilt, I think.

The retreat looks as thought it was so much fun!

I like them both, and the third one (with the map of Africa) too.

I love those elephants! It is hard to choose which on I like better. The fabrics are very striking together. Well done!

The beads are perfect there! I like both elephants, but I'm with you - the red is my preffered! :)

Grappig dat je uiteindelijk versie twee het mooist vindt terwijl je voor versie één ging. Ik ben het geloof ik met je eens!
