My quilt guild has been passing around a box full of Hawaiian print fabrics. I think they were scraps and leftovers from shirts that someone donated. We’re taking turns making charity quilts using the contents of the box, and this month is my turn.
We are allowed to add our own fabrics, but I wanted to challenge myself to make it using only fabrics that were already there, then add some of my own back to the box for the next person.
My daughter thought it would look like a hot mess, since the fabrics don’t exactly coordinate, but we were both surprised at the result. The quilt actually looks great. I can’t wait to pass it along to our charity coordinator, and I hope whoever ends up with the quilt loves it!

I love the extra-long top on this hat from Patterns for Pirates. And so easy to make!
I need this garland from Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss all over my dining room.
I think I would actually wear this poncho from Melly Sews. And I need to find this black and white buffalo check to make it in.
I’m taking a cookie decorating class with my daughter at a local bakery in a couple of weeks, and that’s got me in a cookie mood. Who am I kidding? I’m always in a cookie mood! These turkeys from Fireflies and Mud Pies are kind of adorable.
One of these years I’m going to make a full-sized Christmas quilt. This one from Tina Curran just made the list of potential patterns to use.
