    the fabrics you have here are great. I can't wait to see them put together in your quilt project. I would be tempted to save some for a quilted tote bag, too!

    Here are the amounts..
    Main African- almost 3 yrds
    the triangles - 2 yrds and the rest are one yard each.

    I will be looking threw all my patterns to see what I have and I have alot.
    That is some beautiful fabric i designed me a quilt of African dolls with the kufi hat i did not have a main fabric. do a square in a square but use the main fabric the center square but cut it a little bigger. Good Luck

    I like your quilt. I have a friend who is from South Africa and thought she would love a quilt made from the main material which I have had for quite awhile now.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Well... since I had just a little bit to do with you finding those fabs, :lol: I thought I better jump in here with an idea. What do you think of this pattern?

    I love the pattern, was looking for something with big blocks and to kind of have a African look to the pattern. I have gone threw almost all of my patterns and have a few in mind.
    Keep looking, I am sure we can find something.
