I love African fabric . While growing up I spent several years living in Africa, both in Morocco and Eritrea. I have been collecting African fabric for a long time and have decided that it is about time that I start using some of it. I always hate to use fabric from my stash, as there might be something more worthwhile that I would rather use it for later. This was a fun quilt to make and I was able to use small amounts of several fabrics, without making too big of a dent in any one fabric. Sometimes life is sort of like having a fabric stash, we keep saving things to use someday and don't enjoy them right now. I'm sure there will come a time when my girls will say, why was mom saving this.
