A less complicated quilt

Stacy in Kijabe
My seven year quilt left me with a strong desire to never sew again... until  2009, when we spent a little over a month in Kijabe, Kenya.

Stacy was our neighbor - she (among many other things) was a resourceful mom of three and a SUPER fast quilt maker. She inspired me to believe that perhaps... someday... I might want to quilt again.

We made a special trip to a fabric shop in Nairobi where I bought a wide variety of colorful East African kikoys for my second (less complicated) quilt.

This very quick and simple quilt got me back on the bandwagon and ended up being a family favorite... also a special memory from a beautiful chapter of our lives. It has a thick and rugged denim back - which makes it a suitable resting place for all sorts of occasions...

Getting back to writing about our South Island Road Trip sometime next week...
