Grandma Quilt Sunday -- Hawaiian Quilt

This beautiful quilt was given to my grandparents years and years ago when they lived in Hawaii. The entire quilt is hand appliqued and hand quilted. I can't believe the amount of detail there is in the applique! I've always wanted to try one of these, but certainly would only do so on a (MUCH!!) smaller scale!


I believe the technique is that there are two pieces of fabric -- the red and the white. They take and fold the red fabric into eighths and cut their design for the center. Then it is pinned to the white fabric and needle-turn appliqued on. The quilting is a ripple effect around the applique.

Gorgeous!

There was an article with instructions on how to do this in one of the summer Martha Stewart Livings this year. She even went into detail about what all the patterns mean. If you can still get your hands on one, I recomend checkign it out!
