Default Hawaiian Applique' - Orchids

I've been working on this Hawaiian Applique' off and on since May. It's a wallhanging and finished at 42" square.

I gifted it to a senior officer I work with. He's been greatly supportive of my quilting, but, in a good natured way, always commented that I should be making him a Hawaiian quilt never once thinking I would actually do it! At any rate, he was stunned when I gave it to him but he loved it. Sometimes giving them away is the best part of making projects like these.

I'm slowly getting better at consistent stitches and the points on the appliqué'. But I have LOTS of work to do to improve the "valleys".

Now I have to find another project to do!

Your wallhanging is so nice. The quilting is beautiful. I may get my courage up one day to try Hawaiian applique.
