My stepson, Mike Simmons, sent me a beautiful photograph he took on a trip with us to Bellows Beach, Oahu, Hawaii. It was so gorgeous, I sent the image to Spoonflower and had it enlarged and printed on a silk fabric. I added extensive machine embroidery to the quilt top and machine quilted it and then sent it as a surprise gift for Christmas for Mike and his wife, Charlene. Funny thing is, like minds think alike and all that – he and his wife sent the same photo to us, enlarged, matted and framed for Christmas!
