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!

When Stacy was making her quilt, Honolulu Hurricanes, she found a secret technique hidden in a Hawaiian appliqué block, like a pearl in an oyster. Just like the classic pearl, the technique is versatile enough to fit with many styles of quilt, not just Hawaiian. This technique will allow you to join prequilted sections together on a standard home machine with ease. This class will help you find some balance between a whacked and slashed quilt in a day finished with a signature stitch from the local longarm quilter, and a never-finished quilt of your dreams sitting dusty in a hand quilting frame. Breaking it down into manageable parts is the key.

Unlike scrap Log Cabin quilts that feature a different fabric in every strip of a block and require hundreds of prints, this scrappy “Kailua Cabin” quilt depends on orderly repetition of fabrics within each block. The trick to the organized mess of the scrap quilt is made simple by fabric selection in groups of four fat quarters. Additionally, the correct fabric arrangement for cutting simplifies the whole process again. The four blocks from the class are the perfect start for a larger quilt and can also be finished as a small wallhanging or four pillows. Join Stacy for a fun evening and create updated Log Cabin blocks using tropical prints and bright colors!
