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.

Almost DONE
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!)

1979???? You do hold on to things awhile :-) I really like the way you attach a hanger to the back without making it 'permanent'. Nice block BTW!

What a great idea for hanging something! Thanks so much for letting me know. Beautiful block too!
