Sometimes the universe points us in the right direction.

*  I want to make a quilt for my belle-mere (my husband's mom)

* My Quilting Goddess wants to make a quilt for this lady ---->

* They both have serious Hawaii connections

* I bought some super cool batiks that have prints that look oh-so-islandy.

Hey! One design + Two variations = Happy Quilters & Quiltees!!!

So my June goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to make 
a birthday quilt (quilted, bound & everything) for Tutu.

Here are the amazing stamped batiks:
These are even more gorgeous in person.  They come in strips, but I will probably just fussy cut them into blocks & add sashing & borders.  So pretty as is - don't think I could bring myself to cut them up.

We'll see what the Quilting Goddess thinks up.  She has so many more quilts (& quilting magazines) in that sexy brain of hers.  Staring with these materials, I can't really go wrong!

Check out the other goals for June at the Lovely Year of Finishes goal setting party!



  1. What gorgeous fabrics! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  2. Hopping over from the LYOF goal, please stop by my blog and enter my giveaway. You go Godess..

  3. I don't usually like batiks but these are beautiful! I can't wait to see how it comes out but I am sure it will be great because it is made with love.
