May FMQ Challenge

Yes, this month's block with Leah Day was more of a challenge than I expected. She makes it look so easy. There is not much difference between my two blocks. However, I did have more control over the speed and moving the fabric. Straight lines still are difficult for me. Practice, practice, practice. I will remember to use a contrasting thread so I can see what I am doing. Certainly not perfect, however, I shall continue to improve.

Fabrics and Patterns of Hawaii

These pictures are for my Niece Shirley. She is going to Kauai in a few days for her Son's wedding. Shirley wants to bring back some fabric from the Island. Here are some beautiful things I found. There are at least two shops I visted while on Kauai. Quilt Passions is on the Big Island, Kailua Kona, HI.
