African fabrics

I purchased these African fabrics about 18 months ago, and really liked them, but had no idea how to use them. In fact I have over that time gathered 14 fat quarters of indigo fabric and 1 red. I bought them from Magie Relph... have a look here.

With an exhibition looming for the new year, and the theme being patriotic colours..... I suddenly had a lightbulb moment and have decided how to use these lovely fabrics. I have a design and idea in mind, and so the first stage was to wash the fabrics to remove the excess indigo dye. I have about a month to complete this.... will I manage to meet the deadline? I'll let you know.
