It's been a long time coming, but finally I have uploaded a few photos of the quilt that Cindy and my Grammy made for Holly and I. I don't know if Cindy realized what she was getting herself into when she gave us the idea of collecting fabric from our travels in Africa... or if she actually realized that Holly and I would take her up on her offer. For Holly and I it was a surprisingly fun experience finding that perfect piece of fabric in every country. Whether we went to a local tailor for some unique scraps, saw a color in a market stall that caught our eye on passing, asked some friends along the way for pieces that they felt where representative of their individual country or quickly tried to find that perfect color as we where about to cross the boarder into that next country. In the end we never did actually weigh how much fabric we brought home, I just know instead of our packs getting lighter along the journey we where definitely accumulating some added luggage. Cindy and Grammy, Holly and I just wanted to thank you again for giving us this great idea and then creating this incredible memento for our travels together in Africa, Thank you.
