Grandma Sally’s Blue Hawaii Quilt

Grandma taught us all how to hand sew little pillows with scraps from her ever growing scrap basket.  She patiently taught us how to tie the knots and take small stitches and make sure the fabrics were facing the right way.  Everything I teach on the first day of my camps I learned from my Grandma Sally:D  Thank goodness for her willingness to patiently teach a bunch of crazy kids.  Thanks Grandma ;D

Once the Layout of a quilt comes together my life can resume.  Until then its all I can think about.

Ruffles made easy.  I just made a big zig zag stitch over a sturdy twine.  All you do is smush up the fabric until its the desired length and tie off the string so it stays in place:D

I Love that my Grandma loves Blue and that she let me make this quilt for her:D  She had saved the fabric for a while and let me pick some more out in Hawaii when I visited last time.

What do you get for the girl who wont let you get her anything or celebrate anything? You go fabric shopping with another good friend and discuss other said friend and her lack of desire to celebrate the wonder of her very existence on her birthday.  And then you work together to make the cutest quilt ever so she can feel warm and loved on all days of the year:D  ;D

This quilt was SO FUN to make.  All of the hard work was done by Dawn who loves quilting, has an eye for beauty, and should have her own pretty blog so we can all tell her how amazing she is.  Thankyou Dawn for Teaching me and being just a sweet loving friend:D
