The Jamaica quilt is ready to travel


















Here is the wallhanging quilt I've made for my older daughter's wedding in Jamaica. It is ready to pack into my carry-on bag for the trip.

The 2 flip flop blocks were signed by guests at her bridals showers. And the bigger palm tree block is ready for the actual wedding guests - almost 30 of them!

My friend Sylvia had some great ideas for adding some fun details to this project. It was her idea to make 2 tiny pair of flip flops to put onto the beach. And she had the idea to embroider the heart and initials onto the tree trunk. And she found the 4 star fish buttons that I added to all of the blocks. Isn't it great to have creative friends?

Then I stumbled on the beach scene fabric online and just had to buy it for borders. I can't wait for the bride to see it!
