I needed to add a quilt picture. This is the Hawaiin quilt I made for our daughter while she was in Hawaii for a year. We were checking out the layout, and have since sewn the top together, added borders and it's now in a quilt frame. After all that hand applique, I just didn't want to machine quilt it. It's slow going, since my right hand can get tired, but it will get done.
She chose all batik fabrics, rather than the traditional red and white. I love the effect, but some of them weren't easy to make a nice applique stitch through. Who doesn't love a challenge?
Have a blessed day

My oh my that sure is a beaut. Good for you doing it all by hand. It will be an heirloom for your daughter!
