I love the colour and movement found in African fabrics. I have travelled to many different parts of Africa and I always loved the way the women manage to wear beautiful bright colours. They mix and match with great abandon. I have tried to mimic this in my Odyssey quilt pattern.
You don’t need to use African fabric, Kaffe Fassett is well know for bright and colourful prints— also ideally suited to this design.
I wanted to design a quilt which has a modern feel but also highlights the versatility of the bold print fabric.
