    I finished my Aloha Quilt, made from a pattern and fabric based on the Elm Creek Quilts novel The Aloha Quilt. The fabric was designed by Red Rooster Fabrics, and the pattern is available online.

    This is a gift for my sister-in-law, whom I'll be visiting in November. She loves Hawaii, reading, and quilts. I'm also giving her the book and a bookmark made from the selvage.

    This is the first quilt I've made varying the quilting techniques. I forgot to change the thread (duh!) so the quilting isn't very prominent.

    Hmm, I see I've fallen behind in my Chiaverini reading. That book hasn't made its way into my collection yet.

    I have a couple Elm Creek Quilters pattern books and look at them lovingly and longingly but haven't yet made anything.
    You've not only done a fabulous job on that quilt, you've thought of how to make an entire gift package.
    How very thoughtful as well as talented.

    That is beautifal. I'm a bit behind on the books. I'm just now reading the New Years Quilt. That makes me want to read faster now. I had no idea there was fabric out for it. I guess I didn't realize there was a pattern either. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup:

    Beautiful - and love the bookmark. What a great use of the edge of the fabric.

    Very lovely quilt and the fabrics are gorgeous. I have not read any of the books, but now I want to start the series. What a nice SIL you are, and what a nice SIL you must have for such wonderful gifts.
