The Hawaii Vacation Quilt complete

Well, the quilt is actually finished and in Hawaii with the family
Ashlynn's Hawaii quilt   

Since Ashlynn was the motivation for the quilt, I used 'rainbow butterflies' (one of her favorite fabrics) to use for the back, it ties in all the colors used on the front.

this is the second time I used my 18~8 longarm quilt machine so I was a bit nervous, especially because it was all straight lines I used following the woven stripe design, yikes!!

I kept telling myself all mistakes would be forgiven because it was more for comforting a little girl than for anything else. She sat in the room the whole time I quilted it pretending to lead an orchestra,,,so funny!! Her waving knitting needle baton was a bit distracting, so that accounts for some of the wavy lines!

anyway, I'm sure she and the family will have some excellent memories for a lifetime and I can't wait to hear all about it
