Considering my stash of African fabrics I desired to make a quilt that conveyed the intensity, heat and rhythm of these unique textiles. The color wash pink/orange fabric was the background for the digitized embroidery and Orange Peel variations. The animals dance the circle of life longing for precious water.

Machine piecing, appliqué and quilting. Digitized embroidery. Hand-applied shell embellishments. African cottons, woven blends, cottons, cotton embroidery threads, cotton batting and backing.
