    I hope it turns out like the picture in my mind with the pattern I am using. Here is the material for the back that I found today, going to make it a reversable.

    I found the one with the mask years ago and when I learned to quilt (just over a year ago) I knew I wanted to make a quilt with it.
    I have a friend who is from South Africa and she know nothing about me making this for her.

    What a great quilt that is going to be!!!! You certainly have an eye for fabrics, and can't wait to see more. I am still in awe that you chose the fabrics to coordinate without that main fabric with you.
