A couple months ago my friend Sana asked me if I’d help her make a quilt for her couch. She wanted something with clean lines, earthy tones, but still invoked a feeling of “the islands”. We picked out these fabrics from my stash, and set to work. We actually only got together 3 or 4 times for about 2 hours each time—thats how quickly the whole thing sewed up start to finish. Sana loved the final result & told me recently that everyone in her family wants to have the quilt when they’re in the living room. She was really happy, so that made me happy.
