I don't know whether this counts as a quilt or not LOL - it is quilted and appliqued though. About 24" square and made of a vintage South African sarong (kanga). I cut the border print off to make the mane.

If it's quilted, it belongs on the quilting board! Very cute, what a clever idea!

Wow it's beautiful.  I'm really digging African wall hangings at the moment but never thought of making one.

Stunning piece of work.  How special that you made it from an African piece of clothing.

Thank you Smiley It had spent about 30 years in a box in my Aunt's loft, and then another 10 years in a box in my loft - it took two washes and a good month of airing to get the musty smell out before I started cutting and stitching!
