Kuwait Quilt

There have been some good moments in the course of this nasty cold, good enough to finish my work on a quilt for a baby who is fast making his way into this world, a Kuwaiti baby :-). This is a quilt he can crawl on, snuggle under, take to school for nap time, and then take off to college to put on his wall:

We had some wonderful moments in Kuwait, many of which, for me, were spent in the fabric souks of Kuwait with other quilters from many nations, including Kuwait. Many of those fabrics are quilted into this piece, along with my everlasting gratitude to the friends we had there who made the experience so much the richer for us.

  4. This is absolutely beautiful! I wish I knew how to make quilts, I would have copied this one shamelessly :p
    Come to think about it, I think its about time I learned to make something new? I hope the baby enjoys his Kuwaiti quilt :*

  6. Danderma, you need to meet my friend Hayfa (comment below yours) and all my other friends at the Kuwait Textile Arts Association. They can teach you how to quilt, and you can teach them things about Kuwait, history and culture. It is a wonderful adventure :-)
