Sleeping w/ the hula girls
This is a quilt I made 2 years ago for the children of one of my bestest friends. It's actually a scrap quilt since it's made from the leftover pieces of a quilt I made for her dad. The hula theme was perfect for that family although the fabric store people were quick to tell me that my fabrics didn't match (like that matters for a luau!).
So here is the original quilt for Tom -
I used the Yellow Brick Road pattern and I made extra blocks because I was rushing to get it done before we went to visit him when he was sick.
This little guy was born the year after Tom (Papa) passed away. This quilt used all the extra blocks for a nice sized kid blanket which is called the Papa Quilt by the three boys now. I'm 87% sure that the blue border on the small one is the leftover from Tom's Quilt and I used the same quilting pattern of a wave and a loop on both.
Now before you all start thinking I'm nice and what not, please know that all three quilts currently in my view (and in various states of progress) are mine, ALL MINE.
