IMG_2621I happend to see this really amazing motif a few days ago and I just simply cannot get myself out anymore. I need to make one for myself. I found out this motif is called Tropical Delight  and designed by Susan Stevens.  The pattern which has been out of print  for some time  and Mellie from Mellieblossom.com  (I do not know for some reason her website is done )contacted the designer and in the endthey made this pattern for free for non-commercial purpose. If you want, you can hop over to her website and read this story. Really big thank you to both of them.
