Ep. 15: Margaret’s African Quilt

For whom and why did you make this beautiful quilt?
For the children at Isaac’s House in Uganda (www.isaacshouse.org). I support a young girl in this small orphanage, which was founded by a friend of mine. I wanted the children to have something special made just for them. Something nice and colorful and which they could relate to.

When did you start and how long did it take for you to finish it?
I started “collecting” fabric and ideas in 2013 and it was delivered to the orphanage in November, 2015.

What do you like best about this quilt?
I liked that I could capture the African spirit with the carefully chosen bold colors and appropriate themes. It was something completely different for me but I enjoyed the challenge of designing and creating this quilt!

Which fabrics did you use?
Only cottons.

Since when are you into Patchwork and Quilting and what got you into it?
I was inspired while visiting a patchwork fair in Virginia, USA.

Which experience during your time as a quilter moved you the most?
Designing and creating a quilt to welcome my first grandchild
