yummy fabrics

I promised that I'd show you what I bought at the quilt shop in Lihue last week as well as my pillow case fabrics for the kids!!

These are the fabrics I bought.  Do you remember last year when I made the quilt for the auction and used some Santa fabric that was x-rated?? Well, I couldn't resist buying another variety.  This time it is definitely G-rated! :-)

I've yet to decide what I'll do with these fabrics.  Because the prints are so large, they lend themselves to quilts with larger pieces.

And here are the pillow case fabrics.

I think they will be fun for the kids.  I will probably work on them this week.  My friend Claire is coming over tomorrow morning to sew and maybe I'll do them then.  I have 6 triangle gatherings to get done, having fallen a little behind again!!!  Maybe one of these days I'll actually put something together.

In just a few weeks, we'll be getting ready for the Sisters Quilt Show in Oregon.  I'm very excited about it and the chance to spend days sewing together with friends!


  1. Great idea for those yummy fabrics--Have you read Roberta Horton's "The Fabric Makes the Quilt"--it deals with using whole pieces of large of the very first
    quilting books I bought and I still re-read that G-rated Santa (but the x-rated one was cuter ah hahaha);))) hugs, Julierose

  2. Love your yummy fabrics! Are you going to do Temecula's Marvelous Mini Monday? I shouldn't start something but it's too cute!

  3. Just looking at these fabric and I can hear the waves crashing on the shore, seagulls arguing and smell the salty ocean air. Where's my pina colada? :^D Enjoy the sewing with friend tomorrow. ;^)

  4. All those bright colors and tropical prints sewn into pillowcases will have you dreaming of your island adventures

  5. what a delight thsee large pattern fabrics are they remind me a bit of Kaffe fabrics. how lovely to have a friend coming to stitch with you must be lovely to share your love of stitching can imagine it will be a fun day

  6. Oh what fun! I can't wait to see your new Hawaiian quilt!

  7. Love the Hawaiian prints, Randy! I'm sure you will find a wonderful way to use them. (don't throw away the scraps!!) LOL
    Those will make sweet pillowcases for the kids. I'm sure they will love them.
    Wow, how did you get 6 blocks behind on Triangle blocks? I am only 40-something behind!! : )
