Blue Hawaii Wall Hanging

This is my submission to the ALQS4. It is an Hawaiian appliqué done using the raw edge technique. I machine appliqued and quilted it. It is 20 in square.

The blue indigo was a bandana I found at Hobby Lobby years ago with the intention of making several of the blocks in the book “Hawaiian Quilting” by Elizabeth Root. I used the Angel’s Trumpet block for this wall hanging.

Here is a view of the center.

Here is a view of the back before I sewed on the 4 in sleeve for hanging.

Thanks, Mary, and knowing I'll get an equally nice one makes it easier to give up.

Thanks, Gizabeth.
