    I just finished this quilt using patterns from Pacific Rim Quilt Company (Nancy Chong's patterns). The blocks are hand appliqued and the quilting is done on my longarm. I used a wool batting for the first time (Hobbs Tuscany wool batting). The top was finished almost a year ago, but I wanted to practice for a while on the longarm before quilting it.

    I love Hawaiian quilts. You've done a beautiful job on both the applique and the quilting.

    lovely!!! are those where you have the positive and negative, so you get two for each block pattern? I almost got some at a quilt show recently.

    No, these are done with needle turn hand applique. As I understand it, the method where you get two uses raw edge machine applique.

    Beautiful work...bet you are so happy with the results. Love the fabric used for the applique. Kind reminds me of the koa wood there. Very unique. What a keepsake.
