“African Memories”

This is my last quilt , ready to pack in my suitcase as I leave tomorrow for a nice visit to the US : Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsi, Iowa .. and perhaps more ! My dear friends , Marcia and Marilyn have planned wonderful things including 2 quilt shows !

Unfortunately, time flew so fast these 2 last weeks that I didn’t had the time to post  another article and photos… I2006-02-03 239 will do this when I’ll be back ! I will meet Ruthann and some quilters from her group !

I also wanted to give you details about this quilt which inspired me so much … not enough time ! But if you understand some french or just to see some pictures , go to visit my other website : http://nanoupatch.fr

I have added more pictures on the flickr album …

I made this quilt to commemorate the 250th Lafayette birthday’s anniversary and also  to celebrate the french-american friendship !  “Freedom, Faithfullness, Friendship”, three “F” for a new motto dedicated to this wonderful friendship! ( made in  2007)
