Joyful Village Quilt - Start

Last night I started on my next project!  It is a folk art quilt using fabrics from Quilting Treasures, Joyful Days, designed by Julia Cairn.  These are beautiful colorful fabrics depicting scenes and people in an African or Caribbean village.

It will be a gift for my friend Vicky in France who has a love of Caribbean art.

Last night I started fussy cutting some of the 4 1/2" squares for around the outside edge.  It is amazing how much waste there is.  In addition it seems that they guestimated the fabric requirements rather high for this.   Oh well, I can probably use the extra to do something cool on the back or make some pillow covers!
