County Claire Progress


I am not sure about this jumble of colors in my recent County Clair handpiecing project, something inside me is conflicting with this project that I must figure out soon. 


I started this Kawandi quilt last Saturday. I took the whole day off and stitched to my heart's content. I have been following @margaretfabrizio and her work in the Kwandi style is stunning!

Simply put, her art pieces are beautiful and the are all made in this Kawandi style. From the Fidi people of Africa who have Indian roots apparantly? 


This is all consuming and fun to take a total break from all you are dealing with right now in self isolation and avoiding going anywhere unnecessarily.



What are you up to in your quilting projects? I see people already working on Christmas projects?

I can't even think that far ahead. I've been very happy with my gardening this year. And making a cold frame for winter fesh veggies.

Happy Quilting everyone!

Thanks so much for continuing to follow my progress. Wish you all wellness and stay safe!

  1. It's such a pleasure (and so rare) to just be able to sit down and sew away. I'm glad you made something fun. It turned out really nice and it will be a pleasant memory from this time instead of thinking about all the other less agreeable stuff. Sweet little piece. . .

  2. Would using a sashing alleviate your misgivings over your project? Maybe something quite narrow? I'm not a 'sane' quilter so haven't a clue about these things but perhaps it would be an idea. I have never heard the term 'Kaewandi' quilt and now I must check into it further. I like what you did so there are great possibilities there!
