What if I . . . .


. . .sewed a bunch of curves together by machine and by hand.  Then I sliced them, sewed them, sliced them again, added more pieces, and sewed it all together again.


Then, what if I went through my African fabrics and found four fat quarters that I really liked.


Then, I sliced them, rearranged them, sewed them, turned them on their sides, sliced, rearranged, and sewed them again.


Then, what if I added a bright orange containment border and a wider border with a great pattern.


This is Tanzania Tango.
