Kuondukewa Siwewe Tu – If I only knew Swahili

Kuondukewa Siwewe Tu

I have no idea what this means but it’s on a panel I recently quilted for someone.  The panel was purchased in Africa and it’s stunning! I absolutely love it!

The center of the sunflowers have white bubbles (in case you missed that). I tied every other bubble with white perle cotton.

I also tied the centers of all the pink flowers and the center of the small yellow flowers along the outside edge. I knew I needed to add more quilting for stability so I stitched along each side of the indigo borders, the length of the vine and around each sunflower.

I’m really pleased with this quilt and so is the recipient.
