This was my first attempt at Hawaiian Applique.
I had originally intended to make a pillow – but after all of these years – I thought it might better serve as an example and reminder to me as to how far I have come in my hand-applique skills.

Needs more quilting – I’ll do that by machine – try out my sewing machine’s “hand” look quilting stitch.
Needs binding – I’ll bind it and use it as a sample for my series on binding quilts.

I decided against doing any more quilting and bound it with pre-packaged pre-folded red quilt binding.
Then I used some twill tape - some small brass safety pins - and a chopstick - to hang it.
It still needs a label. (No heart or scrapcard on this one - rats!)
