    You are doing a wonderful job on the Ulu. As you know, that is the pattern we all started with.

    Thanks for your suggestion, I am a little nervous about tackling this big project especially white background. Please excuse the spelling in my original post I had 3 DGS( 5, 3 & almost 2)here while mom & dad got a break for their anniversary. I was exhausted and for bid myself from any sharp instruments like a rotary cutter until I at least got a nap in.

    I've started the same breadfruit applique and mine looks nothing like yours. That's why it's a UFO. I keep telling my self I'll finish it and I will. Someday. Yours is beautiful!

    My comment" That's beautiful, and I am sure glad it is you doing that hand quilting an not me!!" I would not ever critize anyone who has the courage to hand quilt any project. I literally hate to do any hand sewing, so all who hand quilt do great!! Can't wait to see your large project completed!!

    I am doing the same pattern, in green, in honor of the four years we were lucky enough to live in Hawaii. You are farther along than I am, mahalo for the picture.

    That is beautiful! I'll go look at the changes next. I did a few pillow sized ones, but did not know of or understand using a print rather than a solid color. Also, for some reason I thought the echo quilting had to be 1/4" apart.

    I took a class on Oahu on Hawaiian quilting and they told me also to make the quilting line a pinky finger away from the last row of quilting. I made a small pillow top using the breadfruit pattern. I just love mine and want to make more of them. My applique work is not great, but my hand quilting is getting better.
    Let peace begin with me and you.

    Hello Tisha! I just joined a few minutes ago seeking Hawaiian quilt lovers. I positively love your breadfruit piece - the colors are wonderful. I am almost finished with an 18X18 heliconia pattern, gold pattern with rust brown background. I think it's lucious but my friends can't figure out why I want to do it (sewing machine quilters, mostly). I piece and quilt all by hand, always have. Well, I can see you understand. I have recently decided to focus on Hawaiian exclusively. Laurianne
