“The Abundance of Africa” is the 9th quilt in what has turned into my “About Africa” series. First I made “The Joys of Africa”. I liked it so much I made “The Beauty of Africa, “The Drum Beat of Africa”, “The Adventures of Africa”, “The Romance of Africa”, “The Hope of Africa,” “The Heart of Africa,” “The Wonders of Africa” and now “The Abundance of Africa.” I have so much African fabric, I may never stop!
Like the other quilts in the series, “The Abundance of Africa” is a quilted wallhanging composed of a wide variety of African fabrics. I added trim at the bottom and lots of buttons to make the quilt more abundant. It measures 40 x 49 inches.
I pieced it on my Janome sewing machine, and Maxine Moore machine quilted it.
The back of the quilt features an African heart motif. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.
After the quilt was bound and labeled, I signed it on the front.
This quilt is one-of-a-kind.
