    Recently finished hand appliqueing & hand quilting a wall hanging with the Hawaiian motif called "Sweetheart". Would like to say thank you to all you have been posting here all along. This is the second atempt to post my first posting of a project. You gave me the courage to tackel this sooner then I planned. Enjoy the photo --- I enjoyed working on this.

    You did a marvelous job on this! I have a couple of patterns for them, a project for future! They make great pillow covers.

    your hand quilting is great. Did you do all around the motif with machine or is that hand quilted too? Very nice..

    I love it! The blue is gorgeous. I fell in love with Hawain quilting a few years back. I purchased my fabric some time ago, now I just need to get going on it.

    You did a wonderful job on this. I want to learn to do needle turn applique. The most I have attempted is only very basic shapes that the seam allowance is already turned under. Your hand quilting looks great. You did so much echo stitching it really makes the applique pop.

    I can't spell, cut I sure can sew.... The only part that was done by machine is to attach the binding on the back side. The front was hand done. The fabric use is "Creative II by M'Liss" blenders. M'Liss has some nice blenders.
