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, this technique is versatile enough to fit with many styles of quilts, not just Hawaiian. This technique will allow you to join prequilted sections together on a standard home machine with ease. You will find some balance between a whacked and slashed quilt, finished in a day 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! You’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish on your home machine with this brilliant technique.

Kailua Cabins: The Log Cabin Block Gets a Hawaiian Update, #37513

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 chaos of this 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!
