African fabric projects

I finished hand sewing the binding and the hanging sleeve last night on my African crooked cobblestones.  It is about 24" x 34".
I also finished the other 2 mug rugs.
I used this fabric on the back of the wallhanging and the mug rugs.  The color changes from area to area so it appears to be 3 different fabrics.

The change, using the African fabrics, is so interesting in those Cobblestones. Yikes.........I think I finally got rid of all my African fabrics in my last yardsale ! I never came up with a deserving project for their uniqueness. YOU DID !
