Someone to Watch Over You

I love the honu of Hawaii, turtles to the rest of you.  The pattern that I am just releasing is very meaningful to me.  The first one that I made was for a new great nephew that was born in May. There were so many emotions that I had as I created the quilt for Pierce.  It symbolizes his brother Yates keeping watch over him.  Below is his quilt that is now hanging over his crib.
It is a very spiritual quilt and is one of my favorites.
The finished quilt, in the pattern, measures 20" x 28".  The pattern does not have the instructions for the borders but you can individualize it if you choose.  I love it when you take one of my patterns and make it your own.  Patterns are just a starting point.  Use your imagination and have fun!

Happy 4th of July, 2014

Happy 4th of July to all of you in the USA.  It is a pretty morning here in Kailua Kona, Big Island Hawaii after a nice rain shower over night.  The cactus that produces yellow dragonfruit was full of blooms this morning just waiting for all the pollinators to visit.  These are my pictures for the white in red, white and blue. Note the raindrops still on the individual flower.
