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.
I bought the kit for this Chinese lantern quilt long time ago, in one of my trips together with my Hubby to Singapore for my medication. I love the oriental pattern and the fabric color in this kit. I didn’t have time to work on this kit as I was busy with other project, and suddenly when I was looking for something in my drawer, this kit come up and got my attention. I took it out and started work on it.
This quilt is my second Rose of Sharon quilt that I made. The same lady bought my first one but after she tried it on her bed, it was too small, then she gave it to her mother for present. As she loves the pattern and color, she wants me to make another one but bigger size so it will match her American king size bed 200 cm x 200 cm. To fulfill her requirement I made it bigger and when it finished the quilt definitely a huge one but pretty 🙂
“I want to have American style blanket” my friend said to me after he learned that I am making quilt, “I want it in blue color, King size to match my bed.” Then I made this quilt using my bali batik fabrics in blue color range. King size bed, and hand quilted.

This quilt was made to order from a customer from Sydney, Australia. She wants to give a quilt for her 8 years old son. He loves trucks, she asked me to make quilt with many trucks. I searched all trucks…

Together with my best friend Claudia Collins, we set up a small workshop ” Anucara” to help the under-privilege teenagers to learn something useful for themselves. In this workshop we teach them to sew, quilting, and also cooking/baking. With this knowledge we hope we can give them something and earn money during their free time and after they finished their school.
