On My Design Floor

I've had these Hawaiian fabrics in my stash for a few years coming up with just the right plan for the large, beautiful prints.  Since I joined pinterest I started a board for large print quilts and that has helped me to easily see different ideas that I could use for these fabrics.
 I can't find the name for the one I used as my inspiration, so here it is as is.
These are the 2 squares in this quilt.  It is a great scrappy quilt.

 It took me 2 hours to do all the cutting and then about 3 hours to get it sewn this far.

 As you can see from this picture, I came up one square short.  Now how did I do that?  I might just shorten the quilt, or if I want to take the time, make another square.

Maybe I'll even get it sewn together today.


  1. Thank you for this post!!! I live in Hawaii and I have tons of "aloha" scraps. This inspires me to do something with them. So simple, yet so visually beautiful!

  2. I've collected tropical fabrics for years and recognize some of yours! I like how you've "windowed" all the fabrics and I may need to do something similar for a quilt for me! I keep making quilts for others, while my wonderful collection of these fabrics have been waiting to be showcased.


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
