I love the appliqued Hawaiian quilts and started this one when we first moved to Washington in 2001. It is done in reverse needle turn applique so that the seams of the white fabric wouldn't show on top of the purple. I love doing reverse applique.
Each block is different - it is from a book given to me by a friend . . .

This is the border - the dolphins were my own design . . .
This quilt top is at Julie's, waiting its turn to be quilted. It will be a lovely summer quilt when finished.
