    This is a gift for my friend who invited me to go to Hawaii with her last April. Entire applique' is needle turned, and yes, hand quilted. This was a wonderful experience for me, both the trip and the quilting.

    I think I am hooked on needleturn like this!

    You did a LOVELY job!

    I have the Poakalani book, maybe two. It took me HOURS to do a little bit. so, I may need to do something like freezer paper the back and glue so I'm not 99 by the time I get one done!

    I must confess that it took me almost a year to do this. I kept this as my in between time quilting, a little at lunch time, a little time in between teaching classes during the day, and a little each night that I had some quiet time. I picked up a HA needleturn book with so many patterns to do, as well as just some paper templates. Oh - so many patterns, so little time.....

    Beautiful Deb. I love doing needleturning too. Especially using the straw needles that flex so nicely. Thanks for sharing .

    Very nice , Deb.

    I still don't quite get the needle turn thing. Guess I actually need to see someone doing it. I learn better that way.

    A lap size???? Man, I know how long it took me to do this pillow. I can't even imagine how long for a lap size.

    Looks fantastic. I purchased a pre-cut Hawaiian applique at Sew Expo. I am looking forward to learning.

    Great to go project..keep at it. I don' t take out the basting until after each sitting, then I am surprised at how much you do in a short time..it is worth the patience. You get faster with each project....
