Latest quilt top completed!

I experienced an enormous surge of energy over the last couple of weeks, and got the new quilt top finished. I put a sizable dent in my stash of African fabrics, but there's still way too much left. Click on the picture to enlarge it and see how many different fabrics I used!

There's still a huge amount of work to be done before it's truly finished... making the backing, doing the quilting, binding it, and, lastly, embellishing it. I have some great ideas for embellishment, and can hardly wait to start playing around with some of my wonderful African beads!

You'll win a prize with this quilt. It is probably the earthiest and most unique quilt I have ever seen. Love those African fabrics.

Hi Francie! It's been too long since I popped in and I love, love, love this exuberant and oh-so-joyful quilt top!!

My year is dedicated to finishing much more humble UFOs, making itty bitty quilts for , making a flannel quilt for DS1's very artistic fiance, and making one quilt from the fabrics in a beribboned bundle of fabrics I thought looked great together about 10 years ago. Of course this last quilt will be scrappy since I would not be able to find more of those old fabrics!

Cheers for creativity!
