Let's Go Hawaiian

I love making Hawaiian quilts.  Here are two I have going.
This first one is a king size quilt.  I saw an idea I liked and made my own pattern.  I wanted it to be more subtle than bright.

I'm working from the center out.  The center is the hardest as there is a lot more fabric to deal with.

I just safety pinned the whole quilt loosely and then pin it heavily where I am appliqueing.
This is my weekend project so it may take a while to get done.

This is my newest project I'm just getting underway. It is 6 small squares that each have their own design and then will be sewed together and a border added.  Half the backgrounds are white and the other half are a batik.

It will be interesting to see how this looks as it comes together.

 The blue and gold are still the paper pattern pinned to the fabric.  This is my travelling project as it is easy to pack and do while away.

I will get going on it soon.


  1. Hawaiian quilts are so beautiful!

  2. Yep, I love Hawaiian quilts! I've only made one mini, but have always wanted to do one for my bed (king size). Your fabrics are pretty.


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