Turtle Turtle

This beautiful quilt came our way yesterday. Mardie bought it for the Junebug at the Honolulu Marathon Expo back in December, and its wonderful for a variety reasons. First off, its adorable. Secondly, Morgan and I have always been big fans of Hawaiian quilts, and while this isn't a traditional one, its still a Hawaiian quilt. Its also from Mardie, who is one of our favorite people. And finally, how perfect is it that the kid is getting presents from running expos before he's even born? Honolulu was my first (and fourth) marathon and will always hold a special place in my heart. Maybe I'll have a new running partner in a few years.

Its big enough to use as a blanket on the floor for playtime, but it also has loops on the back so we can hang in the nursery if we want to. Thank you, Mardie!


  1. Pretty! I didn't know you did the Honolulu marathons! And I didn't know you like Hawaiian quilts! What I do know is the Honu (turtle) is an ancient Hawaiian navigator, and if these honu are looking after you and your budding family, then they will help you on the right path.

  2. What a great quilt.. your babe will be so well dressed and snuggled :)

  3. I'm glad you like it. That is a great picture of it....
