A Hawaiian quilt is a distinctive quilting style of the Hawaiian Islands that uses radially symmetric applique patterns. Motifs often work stylized botanical designs in bold colors on a white background. Hawaiian quilt applique is made from a single cut on folded fabric. Quilting stitches normally follow the contours of the applique design.
Once you’ve cut, basted and appliqued and quilted your first Hawaiian-style quilt masterpiece, you will realize that it really is a lot easier in many ways than traditional appliqued quilts with tiny pieces and less threatening than putting together many colors of little fabric pieces for the patchwork style quilts.
When you decide to start your first Hawaiian quilt project, you better start with a small project without too many points and curves. This way you can gain expertise and control of your needle working on a long straight or gentle curves done in a long stretches of the design.
What I have here is pillow cases using Hawaiian style. I used bali batik fat quarters and I chose anthurium pattern to match the color. The result is amazing, the anthurium leaves stand out from the white background.
