The Hawaiian-style quilt has finally become a machine appliqué project! In this class, you will learn how to trace, cut, and fuse a Hawaiian design. This kind of design is unique because it is folded and cut like a paper snowflake. Additionally, Stacy will show you how to cut it so carefully that you get two blocks from one piece of fabric! In this class, we use special hand-dyed fabric called Hula Hoops. The radiant design of the cloth blends right in with the Hawaiian style, making the blocks even more exciting!
