I realized that I may have neglected to post information about the doll quilt swap which Lori (humblequilts) recently hosted. I apologize for not posting this, although I did thank Heather for sending this adorable doll quilt! If I have already posted this, then you are lucky to get a second look at this great little quilt. Who doesn't love cheddar???
I just returned from an unexpected jaunt to Kauai, I went on a tour of the Allerton Gardens and found the most amazing trees...Moreton Fig Trees. They were in the movies Jurassic Park and others! In the garden, there was a bamboo section with a fabulous Buddha.
Can you believe those roots??
of course, I had to stop in the gift shop before the tour and spied these fabulous little Hawaiian wallhangings. They were definitely made in China and were selling for a whopping $150 and were handquilted.
This one is of course my favorite and a friend of mine was debating about whether this would fit in her house. Otherwise, I'd have snagged it! It had a matching pillow too!
If you've never made a Hawaiian quilt, you may be surprised to learn that they take a ridiculous amount of time! The work is worth it, in the end, because they are just beautiful. I've only done small wallhangings.
I am watching the grandkids this weekend so won't get any sewing done, but next week? WOOHOO! And my dh is working so I get my house back to myself so I should be getting lots done!!
