Travel Memories

I travelled to Peru last summer and fell in love with the country! I bought back a Peruvian woven fabric rug to cut up and make a quilt with. I have several others too, my husband works in Peru a lot and brings them back for me.

So whilst it was cold on Tuesday I decided to get into designing this paper pieced Peru themed quilt that has been in my head for 6 months.

This is block one an alpaca

And this is the finished quilt diagram it measures 44" x 29" so it should be a great wall quilt!

The striped fabric in the border, the rugs the alpaca and llama are wearing and the Peruvian woman's skirt and poncho will all be authentic Peruvian woven fabric so it should look great once it is completed with the right fabrics :)
