Some pics of a WIP, my Hawaiian wall hanging. I learned Hawaiian quilting when I lived on Oahu, and now I am able to design my own patterns. This is called Kalo, Ulu, and 'Aina (Taro, Breadfuit, and Earth) Now I just have to quilt it.

I love this!  It's really beautiful... and it just so happens to be my two favorite colors in the world!

That's beautiful!  Can you explain briefly the Hawaiian technique and how you designed the pattern?

(As an aside, Suegee, love your pug!)

Are you going to do the traditional echo style quilting? Is this to be a wall hanging? I started a little, pillow size, one years ago and didn't get very far on it.
One more thing. What is breadfruit? I've wondered that ever since I saw a movie decades ago about Captain Cook. (I believe...)

Thanks all, yes, it is hand appliqued. As far as how it was done, and how the pattern or design was made, I am working on a tutorial for all that, it is easier to show it than to tell it. I plan to do traditional echo quilting, and it will probably be a wall hanging. I have several other projects in the works right now, so I hope by August I will have the tutorial. The applique is worked with a basic needle-turned method.

here is a wiki article about Ulu:


Thanks for the questions and the love. Linda

Very beautiful work.  I can't imagine doing all the hand sewing you did.  It looks marvelous.  I can't wait to see it quilted.

I've got a handful of vintage patterns up for trade/swap (1950s/60s): Monograms, embellished bags, men's robe, lace work, spats/bags, bell bottom, mod dress.  PM if interested.

My grandma used to hawaiian quilt..she even started a little club at her local church..she would make all of the grandkids quilts then once you got married you got another quilt..I got mine after she passed-at that time I was married for 8 years-that was 3 years ago..I have to say that it is the most beautiful quilt ever and no one in my family has picked up the hawaiian quilt talent..

I love your design and I know it takes patience and love..

great job Smiley

its ME!!
