Hawaiian Quilt Pillow

Quite a few years ago, Kevin’s mother gave me a kit for a Hawaiian quilt pillow that she had picked up in Hawaii.  It had to be at least 10-15 years old at the time.  It was my “boat project” that I worked on when we were hanging on the hook or sitting at the mooring.  Because I was only working on it a few days a year, it was taking too long to finish.  I decided I needed to ‘get it done’ so I could move on to other projects.

I like Hawaiian Quilting.  It is definitely different than the crewel, cross-stitch, and needlepoint I have done in the past.  Some day maybe I will design and make another one.

I finally finished it about a week ago.  Now I need to figure out what to do with it.  Maybe it will go on Autumn Dream, though I already have an assignment to make a leather bolster pillow for her, and I don’t want to have “too many” pillows crowding the main salon.

Last week I picked up a knitting magazine, and that inspired me to dig out some patterns and my crochet hooks.  I bought some yarn the other day, and I am working on a cap-sleeve sweater.  I’ll share when it is finished.
