Hawaiian fabric quilt

My neice went to Hawaii for her honeymoon bringing back several pre-cut squares and a few yards of beautiful fabric.  Although she is a very talented in sewing working for the Mouse at one of his parks, who has time to make a quilt?  I do, I do!

I was honored that she thought to trust me with her special treasure of fabric, look how beautiful the colors are.

I then add some neutrals to firm up the background

Once I received the fabric I already had a pattern in mind out of Bonnie Hunters book

Before starting on the project I thought a sample block for approval was necessary

Got the OK, now during TV time I can run the fabric through the Accuquilt so everthing is ready when its time.

Thinking about runnung a strip of turtles around the outside as a border, I have time to think about it.

Linking up with Lets Bee Social with Sew Fresh Quilts and WIP with Freshly Pieced, use the side buttons.

Off to sew,


  1. What fun fabrics, and the pattern you chose seems really perfect - especially the green inner sashing (awesome)! It looks like you are going to have a lot of fun working on this project; enjoy!

  2. Wow, I love the fabrics and the block design, the quilt is going to be awesome!

  3. What dies are you using? I got my AccuQuilt for Christmas, and I'm not too good yet in interpreting written directions into AccuQuilt. Are you?
