African Wedding Quilt

The African wedding quilt top is done. Now I just need to buy the batting and sandwich this together. I’m using a navy capulana for the back and a royal blue quilting cotton for the binding.

  10. Kelli, that quilt is gorgeous. Your friends are going to love it! I am very impressed. Glad your new job is going well and I must say I am quite jealous you are walking to work. I miss that about my time in NYC – I loved strolling home after a long day with a cup of java and my iPod.

  11. Wow, progress is right! That looks really great, I love all the colorful fabrics set off against the neutral background.

  12. kelli, i just don’t know how you do all you do! wow, this quilt is really cool…i love its earthiness. quilting has always fascinated me but i don’t think i’ll ever have the patience to learn it. i suppose i’ll just continue to admire the work of talented people like you!

  19. Seriously. I agree with Ellen – how come you get extra hours and the rest of us are stuck with 24?!?

    I absolutely love the patterns in that quilt.

    You’ve probably said it in an earlier post that I missed, but I’m curious about what kind of camera you use. Your pictures are always so crisp – I’m working on it, but I have to ditch most of mine to find one good one that’s sharp.

    Beautiful quilt!

  20. Love the quilt!
    I’ve been working on the same one for nearly two years now : P
