Yesterday I went through the bags of souvenirs sitting in a pile. We’ve been so busy here that I have not had a chance to really look through my quilt store purchases. There are three quilt shops on the island but I will only get to this one, Maui Quilt Shop. I have 4 non quilters in tow and a jam packed schedule so I went with the shop I know and love from the last trip! I will post pics of the inside of the shop in a later post.
I knew going in that I wanted a turtle quilt kit to make for Leah. I found this one and I believe it is reverse appliqué which will be new to me.
I also wanted a new Sashiko project for myself so I picked up this one.
I almost left the store without this beautiful quilt pattern and I’m so glad I didn’t. The quilt was hanging as a sample and the kit was about $150. I really didn’t want to spend that much so I settled on the pattern and choosing a bunch of fat quarters to get me started. It calls for 18 fat qtrs so this is a good start.
There were several beautiful Hawaiian flower patterns for wall hangings. I chose the Bird Of Paradise one and got some border fabric for it.
I wasn’t leaving without a book on the history of Hawaiian quilts!!
And as a thimble collector, this is going home too…
I wish I could fit more in my luggage to bring home! Thankfully, Maui Quilt Shop has an online store as well….
Today is my Lindsey’s 13th birthday!! We are going to celebrate Hawaiian style with a trip to the Maui Ocean Center and a nice dinner out.
