I attended a guild workshop yesterday taught by my friend, Janet Elia. It was a fun, laid back Hawaiian quilting class. No pressure, slow stitching, perfect for the end of summer.
Janet provided a simple bread fruit pattern, but the over achiever in me reared her ugly head. Bill purchased four Hawaiian pillow patterns for me on one of his business trips to Hawaii more than 20 years ago. It was finally time to use one!
I decided to celebrate the Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. I used the small orchid pattern with Kona Crocus.
It took me hours to baste this sucker! By bedtime, I had finished appliqueing 3/4 of the piece. I was enjoying the process so much, I couldn't stop!
It was a fun day with friends, and I think I'm going to love this pillow. Thanks, Janet!
