Hawaiian Quilting, 2 Fabric Applique, Lessons and so much more!
Here is my three color version of You are in Our Hearts Hawaiian Wall Quilt. This quilt was created using one of the Hoffman Supernova Panels. I am just loving this color combination and how it also shows off the plumeria blossoms. You can find an earlier blog post about Multi-colored Hawaiian Quilts and how to create them by clicking on the link.
While working on this quilt I decided I wanted to have it complete for the Medford Quilt Show so in order to complete it, it was going to have to be quilted by machine. It also needed to be the traditional quilting method of echo quilting.
Aurifil's 28Wt hand quilting thread was used on top and the Aurifil 50Wt thread in the bobbin. This gave a little more importance to the quilting lines. I am happy to report that it worked wonderfully. Always remember when you are using a heavier weight thread you will want to make sure you have the proper needle to accommodate the size of the thread, you might also have to adjust your tension a bit.
Take a look at the video and let me know what you think and if you have any other ideas for videos you would like to see a demonstration on just let me know.
