    Talking to a few Hawaiian ladies who did some amazing work, they were telling me of quilts that have taken as long as 2 years for them to complete. UGH!!
    I think Hawaiian Quilts are awesome, but not tackling one of those any time soon!

    I agree with you. To tell you the truth, I'm scared to put it on a bed yet! You should probably try a pillow or wallhanging size one someday, just for fun. I promise you won't get too addicted... :twisted:

    Mine isn't on the bed. I take it out once a month to give it a shake or 2. My cats, even tho they don't have front claws, would put holes in it, plus hubby LOVES to put his dirty, smelly clothes and shoes from work on the bed even tho I yell at him all the time about it. It would devestate me if something were to happen to it. I paid WAAAY too much money for it to get ruined. Once I DO get my house (about 100 years from now) I'll have a guest room where it will go.

    Shari...what do YOU think?
    Hand quilt it? I tried, didn't like it.
    Then I tried Stitch In The Ditch.
    Didn't like it.
    So....it's all squiggly, that's what Courtney calls it...all over it.
    The white with the little bit of red is done in white and the
    red heart is done in red, so when you turn it over to the back, you have
    an outline (quilting) of the heart. It's kinda cool!

    So, now YOU have to make one! :)
