Kinshasha

As you all know I am a devotee of the African Fabric Shop. So I was delighted when proprietor Magie asked me to consider working with her on a commssion to design patterns for her to make kits with. This wallhanging Kinshasa is to be the first one. Magie still needs to make her own version up and get the kits together so I am not sure when it wil be available to buy but you can be sure I'll let you know. I was able to visit her on the way home from Wingham Wool Works on Sunday and collect fabric for the next pattern. I am not going to get rich from these kits but I am delighted with the recognition. (And being able to quilt with her fabric for free is not bad either!)

Handsome piece of wall art with beautiful fabrics. Congrads.

Lovely! It's always nice to have some idea of what to do with those african fabrics. They are so nice, but have a lot of personality so it's often hard to know what to do with them.

That's a really nice piece. Last may the fabric shop was at the EQC in Veldhoven amd a lot of people said they really liked the fabrics but didn't buy them because they didn't know what to do with it, so I guess this will really come in handy.
I met Magie too, she is realle nice (and skinny!)
