    Great Job, the echo quilting really accents each design.

    Your quilt is absolutely stunning. I love the color, just like your waters. I have a cousin who belongs to the guild in Honolulu and I was fortunate enough to attend a meeting with her. The ladies there do such wonderful hand work. I did a Hawaiian quilt as my very first applique project about 15 years ago and it is still one of my favorites.

    Yes, Wow!! Is the applique'd portion all one piece? I thought I was doing well finishing a 12 inch square for a BOM at my quilt guild. Thanks for sharing.

    Did you get to go to any of the stores I suggested?

    All the instructions say the echo lines should be about a finger-width apart. Because I'm usually all over the map, I marked each row 1/2-inch from the row before which works better for me.

    It is one piece. Remember the paper snowflakes we learned how to make in grade school? That's how the applique' is done - folded in eighths and then cut through all 8 layers at once.

    This quilt is AMAZING! I am completely inept at applique unless it is the simplest of shapes. I am in awe of Hawaiian Applique and yours is equally awe inspiring.

    Thanks for the info. I have been using 1/2 inch width, but I was only guessing.

    Thanks, it looks like it would be one piece but I wasn't sure. Recently, at our quilt guild we did a 12 inch square. The demonstrator said we had to cut off the section just before we were ready to needle turn applique. I see how that would be especially important for you on this one. So glad you showed this work of art to us. We are lucky to see it.

    I just finished listening to Jennifer Chiaverini's book "The Aloha Quilt." I learned a lot from that book, both in the quilting end and also the history of the "Queen's Quilt". That is a gorgeous quilt. Also the scenery is described as absolutely awe-some, some of the food sounded delicious, Pineapple Pecan muffins. Anyhow, it is giving me the idea of doing a Hawaiian style quilt. Yours was gorgeous, too! Edie

    What a beautiful quilt! I admire your persistence. It would take me years to finish one.
