• Hawaii Quilt

  • Naturally dyed cotton using  osage wood harvested in Austin, Texas. 

    Hand appliquéd and hand quilted in Austin with japanese sashiko thread and the loving help of my friend Monica Loring.

    Hand finished with naturally dyed cotton from the same dye lot. The double-binding is folded over creating a durable edge and mitered corners. 

    90 inches x 90 inches Fits oversized on a queen size bed, or lightly draped on a king size bed, can also be hung as a work of art. 

    The applique star design was inspired by the pineapple lined up in the markets and roadsides of Hawaii. The applique technique used here pays homage to Hawaiis well known signature style of applique quilt making.
