This is my coat Synapses. I won 1st place wearables in the Quilt Africa Challenge.
I made this for the Quilt Africa Challenge.
To participate in this challenge we had to buy a Mystery fabric bundle from Quilt Africa Fabrics
As we could only add 25% of other African fabrics I bought some more yardage and a Mystery pack of 4 inch squares. We could also add a solid colour of our choice.
When the fabric arrived it was quite a hotchpotch of designs and colours.
I started with the 4 inch squares and cut many more from the Challenge fabrics. And also from African fabric remnants I had in my stash. ( a present from Tilly Zegers )
I made many 4 patches. I had seen the video Miriam posted about fussy cutting and joining shapes. I didn't fussy cut the squares, I simply cut them. But once cut I looked for pieces I thought would connect nicely to each other.
