Like the Water





Nap times, early morning times, late at night - whenever I can... stitches are being worked. The echo quilting lines are going in on my little Hawaiian anniversary cushion. This I think, is my favorite part about Hawaiian quilting. Echo stitching is so iconic of the Hawaiian style. Did you know that Hawaiin quilts always have echo quilting because it mirrors the water - the water that we see and love everyday?  

What have you been working on lately?

  3. Looking good, so many tiny stitches to make a pretty big picture!! I'm still working on sewing little patchwork squares together from my scraps, and then it will be ready for quilting. I'm going to try some hand quilting on it. Yay, wish me luck!! Kelly
