African scallops

Had this post all written!! It vanished ... Maybe I got slap happy with the backspace button, hey ho.

I started collecting shweshwe fabrics when I was sick, I loved the brilliant vibrant colours, didn't really know what to do with them until I saw Jo Averys beautiful scallop quilt in love patchwork and quilting magazine.

Sooooooo armed with tinfoil and a steam iron I set off.

 

 

 

There we go! This one has already gone to the quilts for Nepal charity. I loved making it but will perhaps be a little less ambitious with my next scallop project!
