The traditional Hawaiian style of quilting features a four or eight pointed motif cut out of a vibrant fabric that is then hand sewn with its raw edges tucked in and stitches hidden. These motifs may seem somewhat abstract at first, but they are ultimately inspired by native Hawaiian plants, flowers, and history. When a traditional Hawaiian quilt is quilted,
the quilter will surround the motif with echo stitching. While the traditional method is very impressive, it obviously takes tons of time to hand sew a quilt, especially with intricate appliqués. Now you can have the same beautiful style of Hawaiian appliqués at the click of a button! Skip the hours of pre-cutting appliqué fabric and needlework by using this in-the-hoop quilting collection for your Hawaiian Quilt. These designs showcase a traditional-style echo stitching surrounding the motifs. With each motif created using multiple appliqués, you’ll have more options when planning your Hawaiian Quilt.
