I know the name is suggestive. The Hubs came up with it. I told him the blocks were wacky and the fabrics reminded me of leis. This is the first time he has come up with a name for one of my quilts. I don't know if he would publicly admit it, but I can tell he is happy I chose his idea.
I used a plain yellow sheet for the backing. Mainly because the fabrics on the front would have baffled me to find a print for the backing. AND it was 9.99 at Target! Plus since it was technically a sheet and not 'quilt fabric' it wasn't against my fabric fast to buy it?! (If it was you, you'd rationalize it that way too)
And can we pause for a moment and notice that I free motion quilted it. Its not a dog quilt or a wall hanging. Its a throw, the largest thing I have stippled so far! I'm working my way up. And I don't think its garbage, so HURRAY!!
