Introducing The Hope of Africa

The Hope of Africa, 39 x 44 inch African art quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2022. For sale.

The Hope of Africa is the 6th quilt in what has turned into my “About Africa”series. First I made The Joys of Africa. I liked it so much I made The Beauty of Africa, The Drum Beat of Africa, The Adventures of Africa, The Romance of Africa and now The Hope of Africa. I have so much African fabric, I may never stop!

Like the other quilts in the series, The Hope of Africa is a quilted wallhanging composed of a wide variety of African fabrics. It gets its name from the word “Hope” appliquéd on one of the blocks and the blue and yellow border. It measures 39 x 44 inches.

I pieced it on my Janome sewing machine, and Maxine Moore machine quilted it.

The back of the quilt features a blue floral fabric. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.

After the quilt was bound and labeled, I signed it on the front.

This quilt is one-of-a-ki
