Magie and Robert have a passion for African textiles, which is shared with us in their brand new book. The gorgeous colour photographs are a feast for the eyes too. Bright colours, bright textiles, bright stories: fascinating facts and glimpses into the lives of African fabric, people and places. The gallery of work by well-known quilters, including Magie, is inspired by their wax print fabrics. You can also order the book gift wrapped in a piece of African wax print fabric, for £16.15 from The African Fabric Shop
. A great gift idea, or the start of your African textile collection!
