“This is Africa” Part 2 – Original Quilt Design

African inspired quilt

Last Updated on 02/25/22 by Rose Palmer

One of the Rothschilds giraffes at Nairobi’s Giraffe Center checks out the other side of my African inspired quilt.  Couldn’t tell if he liked it or not.

Quilt Inspiration – Whereas the “front” side of my African quilt has a landscape orientation, the “back” side has a portrait orientation. The small postcard-like panels were actually part of a large printed batik panel that I purchased in Zanzibar last summer. The small panels showed different African scenes.

I photographed the quilt at Nairobi’s Giraffe Center, a facility that promotes the protection of the Rothschild giraffe.

The quilting was done by Cindy Carey of North Star Longarm Quilting.
