This quilt shows the silhouettes of three Masai women. These women have features commonly found in East Africa.  They have long stem necks and are often very tall, and they distinctly dark skin.

I find them very intriguing and also strikingly beautiful.  As an African woman myself, I love to  display  a little bit of Africa in all my quilts by the fabrics I use, making my quilts so unique and I love that.

Love the African art. Fell in love with Africa after being in Kenya in 2001, I think I left part of me there! I always gravitate to African fabrics.
