Folk Tails Quilt
It has been quite awhile since my last post, life got a bit complicated. After Christmas, I sewed the binding on Folk-Tails and today I hung the finished quilt.
Folk-Tails is a wool quilt was designed by Sue Spargo and was introduced as her 2015 block of the month. Folk-Tails was a creative journey for Sue as she was born and Zambia so designing the African animals, birds and vegetation brought back many childhood memories. January through October 2014, I received 3 blocks to appliqué and embellish plus each month Sue would write a story about African folklore such as "How the Zebra got his stripes" and "Why Warthog is so ugly". The beautiful machine quilting was done by Jessica Jones Gamez . The finished quilt is 37" x 43". Close up of quilting on the giraffe and stork
