On a flight home from Hawaii last summer, I began envisioning a flower blanket that reminded me of the glorious, bold flowers I had seen while visiting the beautiful islands there. So on the plane I began furiously designing--and this beautiful blanket is the result of that inspiration! It is thick and warm yet breathes. And the back of the flowers look as beautiful as the front!
