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.
