Next up- gifts, of course. First, I found this incredible blog that has inspired me to take up quilting. Previously I have been afraid to quilt as I hate ironing and I never figured out how I was actually going to quilt the quilt. But I have made my peace with the iron and learned that it is possible to quilt on my machine.
A while back, Lacey and her hubby visited Hawaii (for the second time, I might add-- when is it my turn?). She brought me back a cute little charm pack of fabric in Hawaiian prints. What better to do with them than to make her a quilt? Especially since she is officially our family's "Tropical Girl." Her wedding was even a tropical theme! So here it is-- one of my first attempts at a quilt (my version of this):
I even added a little tag with my name on it:
And my version:
I am pretty happy with it, although it did turn out a little bigger than I planned. And my, it took HOURS! But I learned a lot and it is for my sister, after all. I even sewed the little name tag on it:
So fun! Okay, so here it all is. My masterpiece!!! He, he, he!
Happy Birthday, Lacey!
