In Progress



I'm making a set of four Hawaiian quilts - two in each color combination. I've never done a Hawaiian quilt before, and I haven't yet figure out how I want to quilt these. But... I'm having fun and that's what art is all about.

Hawaiian Quilts



I've been wanting to try my hand at a Hawaiian quilt. I picked out two one-yard pieces of fabric which appealed to me. Then I sat down with the scissors and paper and cut out paper snowflakes until I had four designs that I liked. I'll post photos of the finished quilts whenever I get them finished.

Close Up Of The Quilting




I did the quilting with gold holographic thread.

Which Way Is Up?




Here's Cabin Fever from another angle.

Cabin Fever



I had an urge to work on a traditional design, so I played around with log cabin squares and had fun putting the sqares together in different ways. I haven't decided on which side is the top, so I haven't sewn on the sleeve. That's why I had to take the photo with the quilt on the floor.
