Hello! Today I’m sharing a little bit more about one of my market quilts, Mahalo! This quilt happens to be one of my favorite quilts. Ever. The reasons I love this quilt are simple: my great-great grandmother made a version of this quilt, it’s scrappy, and it’s much easier to make than it looks!
If you think I’ve shared this before…you’re right…kind of. I previously made
this quilt, and it was published in American Patchwork & Quilting (you can read all about that version here).
It was about the time that I made the first version of this quilt that we were working on our Desert Bloom fabric collection. I knew from the beginning I had to make this quilt with Desert Bloom…and that I would love it even more with these fabrics.
My friend Marion did the same String of Pearls quilting pattern on the new quilt (it was just so perfect for the pattern)!
And…now that it’s been 6 months since it was published, I’m able to release the pattern as a single pattern!
Even more exciting is the fact that Moda is going to be kitting this quilt in one of their fun boxes! I can hardly wait to see it! The kits will ship in November…and I have them for pre-order in my shop now until June 15th.
The folks at Moda also made a version of Mahalo, and it was able to hang in Camp Moda during quilt market. Their version was beautifully quilted by Maggi Honeyman.
