This is one of my all-time favourite quilts, and one I found very hard to give away. I made it for my brother's then girlfriend's 30th birthday, so that would mean it was made about 10 years ago. I actually have enough fabric to make another one the same, it's a job that's been in the back of my mind for a long time, and you never know, I might get round to it one day! This was the first quilt I made that I designed myself and uses some of my beloved Africa fabrics. You might even recognise the zebra print in the centre of the orange stars - they appear again in Nic's quilt (note to self, if I do remake this quilt, I'd better check I've still got enough of this one!).


  1. I don't think I have seen this one before, it is beautiful. If you are still thinking of making one for yourself after all this time then you should do so - right now!

    Funnily enough, if I have made a quilt for someone I rarely have any difficulty in giving it away. I think it is because I know the quilt is not going to live with me and therefore I never get emotionally involved with it.
