This is a lap quilt I made for my twin sister in honor of our 50th birthay. (Yes, that was a few years ago- 5 to be exact!!!)
She and her husband hosted a party for us- a luau complete with a Hawaiian musicians and dancers. Naturally, the entertainment included embarrassing ourselves as we did our best to look like tourists on Waikiki.
I used a fabric with bird of paradise for the border. We grew up with those flowers in our yard, and we also had a framed pastel of them in our living room for many years. So it worked well with the party connection and a little piece of our childhood too.
