March and April

I made these a month ago, but just got around to taking the photos. I really need to work on May and June so I get caught up. Hopefully I can do that Wednesday on my day off. It has been so hot here the last two weeks, sure hope we get some relief and we don't have to endure July and August with 100 degree days.

Well, It has been awhile, but I have finally finished my hand appliqued hawaiian quilt. I can't remember when I started it but I believe it was sometime late last summer. I really love two color quilts, especially red and white. This was a fun quilt to handquilt, it is very heavily quilted, no marking. I did a little research on hawaiian quilts and the echo quilting that is done, represent the waves in the ocean and the appliques represent the islands. I am glad to get it finished, as working on something new is exciting, but am also glad that I had what it takes to finish this project.
