This quilt was one of my first appliqued quilts. I still really do not like applique (machine or hand), but the way my friend Jo-Anne taught me, makes it a little bearable by hand.
The applique pattern is from Sue Garmen. The fabric is a line from French General – French General Favorites. It has small Fleur-de-lis all throughout the fabric – I felt it was perfect for the quilt.
Being in Hawaii influenced my quilting style, as did being around my quilt bee group, the Sassy S&B (stitch and bitch) Quilters. I probably would have never tried this quilt without the support of those ladies, especially Jo-Anne – thank you!
