After I had sold a heavily beaded quilt about a trip to Hawaii (Humuhumu-nukunuku-a-pua'a ame 'Ohana), my daughter Emily expressed her frustration at the sale. She had hoped the quilt would be hers. I promised her a heavily beaded quilt of her own, but told her it would not be another undersea image. Rainforest was born, and along with the beading of the flowers and animals, there are 4 little glass frogs hidden in the quilt (just 'cause they were fun!).
