It's been a long time since I posted. Work has been crazy and taking all of my energy. But I have been quilting. I'll be sharing some finishes. Here is a baby quilt for my neighbor, Stacy, who is having a baby girl in the next few weeks.
It's fairly simple with nine patches and snowball blocks. I machine quilted with stitch in the ditch and free motion loops. The back is flannel from Mardens. Love the little monkeys. Sew Happy.
We are at Lihue Airport, waiting for our flight to Honolulu and on to Phoenix. I took my first helicopter flight yesterday. It was fun. The NaPali coast is amazing! It has not rained in more than a month in Kauai so the only waterfalls I saw we're Springfed, so I will have to come back to Kauai and take the helicopter tour again some day!
Took a ride yesterday for a little Kauai quilt shop hop. First stop was Vicky's Fabrics in Kapaa. Small shop with lots of Batiks, Hawaiian, and Asian fabrics. Next stop, Kapaia Stichery in Lihue. Great shop with many beautiful Batiks, and Hawaiian fabrics and gift items. Last night we had dinner at Hanalei Gourmet and then across the street to Tahiti Nui for a MaiTai and local entertainment. So fun. Helicopter ride this afternoon of the NaPali coast!!
Our flight from Phoenix to Hawaii was cancelled yesterday, so we had an extra day there. We went to the Phoenix botanical gardens which was very different from most gardens, as it was filled with Segauro and other cacti. They have an amazing Monarch butterfly exhibit too! Pictures below. We have finally arrived in Hawaii and are waiting for our inter island flight to Kaui. It is absolutely beautiful here. We are sitting in the garden of the airport with the doves. Aloha!
