    Anaquilts - I LOVE your Sunset over Hawaii quilt! We just returned from 10 days in Hawaii, and I brought home a ton of fabric! I am looking for ideas for a quilt pattern to make. I'm not much for applique, so I won't be making one of those wonderful native Hawaiian patterns. Any ideas would be helpful!

    Tell him to shop at fabric mart. Besure he asks them where the 100% cotton prints are unless you are open to polly cotton. Also you can find fabrics at Aloha stadium swap meet, Ohau, Sat. and I believe Wed. You can order fbarics directly from Fabric mart but I think you need to order it by the yard. the last time I was there DH took me to another store and it was evben cheaper then Fabric Mart and similar fabrics. It said something whole sale and was on Ohau but for the world I can not remember the name. It was close to a whole sale Hawaiian silk flower place and I beleive fairly close to where Costco is now located.

    I think a lot of these Hawaiian prints lend themselves to some more modern paterns because of their often large scale prints. I think a large drunkards patch would be awesome too. One more on my todo list.

    Sweet quilts and what a legacy you are making for your family.
    Thanks for posting pictures and encouraging me to safe DH
    and my DS's shirts and DD's dresses.

I started doing Hawaiian Quilting using these fabrics and it takes up a lot of my time (about 6 months or so, to make ONE) but it's worth it. I am just about the only quilter in the family (of my generation) and have been making baby quilts for every newborn since 1985 when my Grandmother died...Because I've come to the time in my life that my siblings and cousins are leaving this world to go into the next, I have started to make lap quilts for the surviving children or grandchildren out of their old Hawaiian Shirts or fabrics from my collection. How do I show you the photos? Mahalo! Robyn

    Beautiful quilt remembering a sweet sister. Thank you for posting pictures. I am so sorry for your loss.

By summer time I was just finishing it and people suggested I enter it into the County Fair. I had never entered anything before and was pleased that it won a Blue Ribbon!

    I hope that helps. It looks like one is plumeria and the other one carnation.

    Never even considered using a hawaiian print in a quilt. Believe I like it more than batiks. Hmm.... you may have started something here. Love the vibrance. They are all wonderful but love the Sunrise and last quilt the most.
