Default Aloha - cute little Hawaiian shirts

I had several prints from my Maui trip a few years ago and started this quilt before my trip a month back. I picked up some more and love the way this turned out. It is a FREE pattern from Moda http://www.modafabrics.com/fp_cfac-sunshine.pdf

I changed it a little to make a bit smaller so I could use minky on the back without piecing (it is 53 x 60). The collars are NOT flush with the quilt so you have be very careful when quilting. I quilted it with a wave pattern as I do not do free motion.

The wave pattern goes very well with the theme of Hawaiian shirts, evocative of the water surrounding the islands. Nice mix of fabrics.

That quilt turned out perfect for the Hawaiian fabrics. The minky on the back with with wave quilting really brought it all together so well. TFS

I absolutely love this! Piecing and quilting is fabulous. I do have a question though. Did you use any batting between the top and the Minky?

Cute quilt and I love the wave pattern. Did you use a ruler of a stencil? I've been looking for something like this.
