KEIKI QUILT

Several years ago I took a class on making these Origami folded Hawaiian Shirts and Mumus from Natalie Barns of Beyond the Reef (http://beyondthereefpatterns.com/). I was making it for my daughter who was moving to Hawaii and it was to represent each family member. It wasn't too long that she was pregnant with number 4 and the quilt never was put up again. Now in Florida and little Noelle being 3, it was time to add her to the quilt. Finding a likely spot wasn't easy and I had to remember how to do it. She is a little off in the border; but, she loves the pink fabric. I had found some Hawaiian slippers for each family member and when I hung it up, while visiting a couple of weeks ago, Noelle told me the pink slippers were hers. Someone must be going barefoot and it is not Noelle.
