Several of the girls went to the wonderful quilt show in Paducah this past weekend - if I were a few years younger I would have been right there with them! Leslie brought me back a lovely die cut Hawaiin applique that is positive and negative. It had me fascinated so this morning I looked through my fabric and found a piece of fabric in my Kaffe stash. I needed a pretty good sized piece and sometimes that's hard to find in my stuff. I thought this went well with the beautiful turquoise. So now I will probably machine buttonhole all around each motif and then layer and quilt the pieces since I think these will make striking pillows. The pillows will be large ones! There is also a spool of yummy thread that came with the gift, but I think I will need another color for the fabric that I chose. The thread will be put to good use later on. It was a little tricky laying out the motifs without fraying the narrow stems. I did fine with it, though, and they may not be exactly perfect, but I think they look really good. Thank you, my friend!!
