Living in Hawaii we have wonderful flowers to enjoy. The colors are glorious to look at. Hibiscus come in so many colors and shapes. The following picture is a hibiscus growing in my garden and it is one of them that led to my quilt that I am sharing during this Bloggers' Quilt Festival.

Quilt Passions in Kailua Kona, Big Island, Hawaii will be having their fourth quilting retreat February 2-9, 2013. There will be a bus tour to Waimea for the Cherry Blossom festival and quilt show and a Big Island Shop Hop. They will have teachers from the mainland along with some of the local teachers. The classes will be held at the Marriott King Kamehameha Beach Hotel. This is just a parking lot away from the shop and the hotel is right by the beach. You can't do much better than that. I will be teaching two classes during this event. One will be my Hawaiian applique class and the other will be an applique project that will be your choice of Tropically Hibiscus or three of the Under the Sea-With Me patterns. The technique will be back baste applique. This will be a good project to learn how to applique multiple pieces together easily. Check in at Quilt Passions later for more details. There will be flyer available in July. Plan your vacation now for a wonderful quilting retreat!
