It’s been a bit slow going getting into my crafting/sewing projects, but my boys and I have finally settled into a routine and I’m carving out dedicated time to work through my list. First up is my Aloha Quilted Table Runner.
The inspiration for this quilt came from a sign we saw attached to the restrooms at Kahalu’u beach on Big Island in May.
The quilt took longer than most, but probably because it was one of the few completely original quilting ideas generated by me and I can really brood over every detail.
I wanted to make the entire quilt, fabrics, batting and thread, from my stash. This left me debating for at least a week on the background fabric. Then one of my dear friends, who knows about my sewing habit, passed along this yellow fabric.
I decided on random wavy lines for the background quilting, thinking it would look like waves. In reality it looks more like wood grain. One of those happy accidents.
