    Sorry to hear you are picking stitches out. I don't think that was the intention of the comments. Being that this is a smaller project and what I assume is a practice, you could have left it and called it a learning tool! Good luck with the full size project.

    Love the top! And now I have to go look up breadfruit. I don't have a clue what kind of fruit or flower it looks like. At least I've seen the design before in applique. Thanks for giving it a name.

    Beautiful job, love the colors. We had Pat Wys as a speaker at our guild last year and she brought atleast 20 different Hawaiian quilts. She also had a workshop with lessons. Beautiful!!!

    I love Hawaiian quilts. Made a block myself years ago but my quilting doesn't measure up to yours. Bravo!

    I did the very same thing when I made my first Hawaiian quilt block. Do quilt 1/2" or 1" apart as you do the next one and you will be happier with the finished result.

    I admire anyone who does a needle turned Hawaiian quilt. For myself, I'd be proud to have made a single Hawaiian block that way. (So far, I haven't.) And test pieces are just that--practice. It's a shame to have ripped out the beautiful hand quilting. To each is own, though. You will have a gorgeous quilt.

    It's beautiful. Your handstitching is outstanding. One of these days I hope I can make one. Thanks for sharing.

    I have done several of those appliques. I made them in to pillows for myself and gave several as gifts. I hand appliqued the flower design and quilted around it on the machine. I loved the outcome.

    I bought fabric, pattern and instruction book for a Hawaiian quilt. I can't find an answer to my question so maybe you all can help. Do I cut my ackground fabric into pieces then do applique and put them back togther or do I try to appique on the entire background with out cutting it? Thanks

    if your making several different blocks then do them seperate then put together as any other quilt....for a big quilt you still have to piece the background bc you can't get fabric that wide...so piece background then add applique as one big piece..hope that makes sense

    It is lovely. I made a pillow years ago. I quilted about 3/8" apart and it looked lovely. (Wondering what ever happened to it.) I think you are ready for a big quilt!

    WOWWW! I love it!
    And thank you so much for sharing with us!
    I learned much today thanks for the comments!
    I always admired the Hawaiian of Japanese books, but I did not understand the technique of quilting!
    I thank you and I will see the end result that surely will be magnificent!
    A big hug!
