    Colors of Palolo Quilt

    I haven't posted in ages but I've gotten lots of quilting done! Below is one of the projects I finished last year. It was a gift for my girlfriend who lives in Palolo Valley in Honolulu, hence the name of the quilt. I always stay with her when I visit and now my daughter and her boyfriend have moved there for a year or so while they work on a new online business. These are the colors of the valley. I went free-form on the backing pattern and ended up liking it so much that I followed the backing for the quilting pattern. I kept just cutting into the fabric and adding new sections to break it up. I had a few people tell me they like he back as well or more than the front. How fun!

    The colors and fabrics are gorgeous! Great design , both front and back. Reminds me of the lush colors of springtime in the sunshine after a rainstorm.

    WOW, what a stunning back !! You color selection really does give the feel of Hawaii. I normally do something different on the back but that is way beyond anything I have ever done on a back. Absolutely STUNNING !!!

    Wow, insanely envious of your daughter and BF living in Hawaii! Never been but would love to go.

    Adore your quilt and have to agree that I really do like the back better than the front. But both sides are equally beautiful. I think what draws me to the back is that it is unique and different. It is vibrant and alive. It reminds me of spiky palm fronds in a rain forest so quite fitting for its destination. And I love those colors.
