another minishow!

Recommended Posts

this is roselie's mini from our barb in hawaii. she says:

"Thank you so much for the the quilt that you made, Barbara. Someday I hope to be able to machine quilt like that. I am undecided whether to hang it in my sewing room or my entrance way. The label on the back is outstanding and love how you made a pocket out of it. I am enjoying reading the book and listening to the Hawaiian music CD that you also sent. And of course, both my DH and I are enjoying the macadamia nuts. I feel like I have my little bit of Hawaii here on the east coast."

You are welcome, Rosalie.

I am glad you are enjoying a little "Aloha"!

The piecing pattern is called "Twinkle" and it was a technique new to me (set-in seams)... out of my comfort zone! The quilting freehand.

The label has it's own story - this is my other "passion" I love photography and the label is a picture I took of a majito (finch). Once in a while, we see these bright little birds flitting and flying as couples or flocks. They are really quite small - 2 to 3 inches. We do not have hummingbirds on the islands :(( . These sunny little majitos are a wonderful substitute and I cannot help but smile, when I spot them!

Once again, Shannon, this exchange is a lot of fun (although I felt a little deadline pressure at the end). My family is all quilted up and these exchanges, help us tap into our need to quilt and connect with others!!!

Beautiful mini and quilting! Love the label, too! My mouth is watering for those chocolate covered macadamia nuts!
