Today is the Amy Butler Extravaganza over at Amy's blog. You. Do. Not. Want to miss this!
My contribution is my finished, pinwheel piecing for the Aloha quilt. I knew I should have taken pictures yesterday when the sky was brilliantly blue and the sun a little higher...
that would have been way too easy and would have looked way too good!
When I started this quilt, the colors, the boldness and the wildness of the print made me think of Hawaii. Robin Jones Gunn's book "Sister Chicks Do the Hula" has the most incredible description of the word "Aloha" and the Holy Spirit in it. It has stuck with me all these years and it is an image I cherish. If you get a chance to read this series of books, you will not be sorry!
So, the Aloha quilt was born. Using a new fangled tool bought at a LQS, lots of head scratching, choosing fabrics, sewing and pressing. There are a lot of hours involved in this piece. Don't get me wrong, it was also a lot of fun, but just time consuming. Okay. I'm done whining now.
Here's my dilemma. How to finish this off. Colors? Patterns? Width? So many unanswered questions keeping me from finishing this. Which I really want to do.
Greens? Lime? Pink? Coral? Yellow?
Heading off to
quilt stores soccer games tomorrow and a canoe trip on Sunday with hubby love's compay. His brother also works there, so we will be canoeing with some very special and much loved family too!
Hope your weekend is good, sunny and blessed!
