The Hawaiian style quilt has finally become a machine appliqué project! In this class we will learn how to trace, cut, and fuse a Hawaiian design. This kind of design is unique because it is folded and cut like cutting a paper snowflake. Additionally, we will cover how to do it so carefully, you get two blocks from one piece of cloth! 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!

The block represents so many designs – a poinsettia, a cactus, plus sprigs of currants. This workshop will teach you the ease of beautiful points, curves, circles, bias stems, plus a bit of history. The art of appliqué is always magical and all three design elements are used to celebrate the holiday season. They are a delightful representation of charm and elegance. The pattern will allow you as a needle artist to provide extraordinary results using your creativity, to stitch this block in classic red and green.
