Sue M #6 Challenge

It has taken some time but my African challenge quilt is finally ready for display.

As you do, I did a google search for Africa and came across the Tinga Tinga drawings and paintings.They are the inspiration for my quilt.

The quilt measures approx 14.5 x 14.5 inches (37 cm square).

Jackie D.#Challenge 6 Out of Africa

I've finally finished my Out of Africa Challenge. I enlarged a drawing from the internet. Then I coloured it with black water-colour oil pastel and quilted around the zebra and quilted the background. It's 15.5 inches square.

Tammy #6 Challenge Out of Africa

I took a class on African embroidery in April, so this was a great chance to use what I learned there. I loved the bright colors against black, seems to be one of my favorite colored combos.

Gudrun #6 Challenge Out of Africa

 Panel by North Cott, captured my imagination .
It was my first attempt at Trapunto  & thread painting.
It has been lanquishing.   I used bamboo from our garden, & found
broken camp bracelets to hang.
It hangs above our dog crate.....the animals corner :))
