African fabric

Here are my first genuine African fabrics from The African Fabric Shop; aren’t they fabulous?

The owner, Magie, kindly donated a prize for a quilting event my guild arranged a while ago, and I have been window shopping, well, not as much window as screen shopping as she’s located in the UK, up until a few weeks ago when I fell I love with these:

Two Huts, Blue

Guinea Fowl, Blue Steel

Pyramid, Blue Steel

Now they are laying in my living room waiting to be washed and added to my stash; I just have to look at them for a while...


  1. I want them ALL!!!! Now!!!

    Wow, how the heck have I missed that shop until now? She's got one of the best selections I've seen.

    Thanks for bringing them to my attention. My wallet doesn't thank you. But I do.

    Best regards,

  2. Oh, they are fabulous! It's probably a good thing that I don't own anything like them because I would be too intimidated to use them!

  3. No wonder you fell in love with those! I have a small stash of African fabrics and want it to grow so I can use it! Thanks for the link!

  4. I love your fabrics. I have a friend who is from Ethiopia and brought me back a bundle of fabrics the last time she went home. I've been wanting to put them into a quilt but don't know how. I'm anxious to see what you are doing. Maybe I'll have to visit the African Fabric Hut to add to my stash.

  5. What beautiful fabrics. I love African textiles.

  6. They are wonderful fabrics - I am heading over to the African Fabric Shop now...

  7. Wow this is fabulous. your design is very good. this design as like as African Wax Print.
