Hawaiian Collection

2013-2-24glow_added

Started in 1974 after the birth of my daughter while living in Aiea, Hawaii. My original design has now been painted and will soon be quilted and beaded.

Tropical Ocean Sunset

Created for the 2012 Durham Orange Quilt Show. It received First Place in Original Works. Includes Hawaiian design and hand appliqué, felting, machine quilting and beading.

2008:  The winter was particularly harsh in Minnesota, so I designed a small Hawaiian pineapple quilt.  It grew into a larger rendition. It was a return to my beloved Hawaiian echo quilting which I hope to incorporate into more quilts - but probably not hand quiiting.
