Quilt Show


What is the color of Africa? The namaqualand daisy exemplifies Africa in color. Brilliant yellow-orange with contrasting black. Violet...glowing cerise blossoms. The mass of color is intense and almost blinding in the clear african sunlight.

Even the place names of Namaqualand are captivating; Nababeep, Liliefontein, Kanariesfontein, Tweerivier.

This quilt is machine pieced using commercial cotton fabrics. The machine quilting highlights the use of specialty threads.
