African quilt

Recently I have been distracted  making a quilt for the Buy a Plank project set up by Helen Conway and Magie Relph to raise money for a clinic in The Gambia.
This all started with a quilt called the No1 African Fabric Shop being cut into planks and sold to quilters to make another quilt incorporating the plank. The quilts are now being auctioned to raise money for the clinic.
You can see the results of the project, plus details about the clinic on
I really enjoyed piecing this quilt and it was the perfect opportunity to use part of my stash of African fabrics.
