From Dakar Comes Sotiba Fabric Panel

So often, I fold and gently refold my most colorful, precious fabric pieces.   Im entering the phase of "What Am I Saving This For?" in my life.  

And Im wanting to enter more original pieces in National Quilt Contests.  This is a 18" x 24" panel.  I'm sewing a two inch border to the right and bottom sides (no cutting) and I noted the unusual wording.   A quick search led me to Etsy and etc.   If I believe what I read..... this is a treasure.  I don't remember how I came into possession..... just having an eye for Africa and saving a few dollars!

....dear friends in quiltland....I'll chat more about this fabric panel as it develops!  Yippee

Year 2022. Covid, Me and First Lady Jill Biden

Yes, we attended a birthday party for a dear 88 year old lady.   About 2-3 days, an itch, a scratch in my throat...... Home test negative.  But oh my.   Visit to ER room and I'm POSITIVE.   

Retired, at home/quaratine ... so I'm fairly cool for 7-10 days.  But the nights are horrendous.   

I have finished a couple of major "CALL TO ENTRIES>>> submission deadline.   More upcoming artist adventures really draw me into that creative closet..... what's gonna burst out of the closet makes me giddy!
