Hawaiian Quilt

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

This one is made from mostly Hawaiian fabrics, with the red cross I like so much drawing the focus to the Hula ladies in the center.  The four directions are represented by different fields of color.  Apart from repeating the white fabric with the bold black floral pattern, and the single Hula ladies block, this is a find the match quilt.  It is made with heavy cotton batting, so it will be super warm, and the quilting pattern is “freestyle”- a totally loose line of loops and whorls which hold it all together.  The backing is a happy stripey single fabric, folded over and handstitched around the perimeter.


Here are the Hula ladies…
