There is a pattern by Larisa Key in The Quilter magazine a few years ago that will probably be great for your African fabric. I actually made a quilt from this pattern a few years ago, unfortunately, I don't have a picture of it to show you, but I feel that you will love the pattern. The pattern is called "Out of Africa" and can be found in the March 2006 issue....here's a link..... http://www.thequiltermag.com/issues/gallery_mar06.shtml
Oh my gosh girl you have serious issues..( I do mean that with kindness attatched and some humor too) please dont be offended. It was said in the kindnest way.
My goodness, you do such BEAUTIFUL WORK. I think that in all honesty, I would have to put that quilt as my favorite on this site...so far. what is the pattern called? It is inspiring..I truly mean it..The ONLY other one that made me envious was a christmas poinsetta quilt on white made by (I think ) quilt dragon...so I guess it might be a toss up EXCEPT I really not into seasonal works. but hers is outstanding. good work lady!
Oh my goodness what is wrong with you girl I thought I was insecure about my work Lady that card is absolutly totally completely no competition fabulous fantastic and wonderful and most of all CREATIVE..YOU GO GIRL now I am inspired

Tamie - I like all your family photos. If you can, post your sons mailing address in Afghanistan on the address discussion on Postcards for Troops group. That way, we can all send him an encourging note on a fabric postcard.
