50% Off Fat Quarters

Aloha! Call your travel agent because it’s time to book a trip to Hawaii by way of your own imagination. For this community-requested challenge, we’re asking you to strum your ukulele and transport us to the luau of your dreams, but with a twist: hidden objects.


Is that a rocket ship hidden in the hibiscus? Do I spot the planet Saturn amongst the sea turtles? Or perhaps there are colorful parachutes hiding in the plumeria? Channel the unexpected and let your creativity soar in this tropical yet whimsical design challenge.
