The second quilt I made for a dear friend who is getting married. Her fiance lives in Hawaii, so she spent a lot of time there. I wanted the quilt to have a feel of Hawaii. On the back I appliqued a large red heart with their names and wedding date.
The third quilt I made for my daughter

I thought that would help me put the colors together. So...here is the pattern and I picked out a tonga treat. Someone please tell me if you think this

The half-square triangles are 7-1/2" (7" finished) and the sashing strips are cut 1-1/2" (finished 1"). This quilt came together super fast! I gave my friend this quilt today and she seemed very happy with it!

It really fits this quilt. It took a while to get it done as I had a wedding quilt to complete first. After those were done, I moved. When I had shown the top to the charity, the response had been somewhat cool. But when I took them the completed quilt, they were so much more delighted
