Hawaiian Applique in Houston

Most of you know me as an art quilter, but did you know I also love Hawaiian Appliqué, especially by machine? Well I’m teaching that very class in Houston on Saturday, and I’d love you to join me. Best of all, you can translate what you learn in the class into traditional, modern and art quilts. A screen shot of the full class description is below.

Just one of nine blocks in my Nourish the Body, Nourish the Soul quilt. You get the entire pattern in class and learn my own techniques–that I’ve not seen anyone else teach–to make a beautiful piece. This is actually a 26″ square pillow sham!
This is the full quilt, about 72″ square. The blocks can range from 18-20 inches, and you get a 2-for-1 pair with my fusible technique. It’s so much fun to see the wonderful variations students make.
We start with a couple little fun practice blocks (6″ finished), then move to the big ones!
Hawaiian Cats anyone?
Here’s the class listing from the International Quilt Festival class catalog! Sign up here.

    my ant supplies (mostly painting) are in our garage waiting for the cabinet to be screwed to the wall (earth quake preventive?) Then I can paint again! I pray for patience! The guy we need to do it has been very busy with other work for other people.

    Interesting. The edges technique looks similar to oto one I did many years ago.

    It’s one of those “there’s nothing new under the sun” but there ARE new quilters who haven’t seen it a decade or more ago LOL! Plus it is FUN!
