pillow covers geometric Hawaiian Appliqué Quilt – Suzanne Jarvis decorative pillow shams

Suzanne Jarvis shares her awesome Hawaiian appliqué quilt!

My daughter goes to Hawaii often with her job and every time she brings me back a few fat quarters. I ended up with a drawer full of them! I’;ve made a few small projects with them, but when I saw Amanda’s Hawaiian Appliqué CutWork Lesson on the BERNINA USA site, I thoughtpillow covers geometric, “What a perfect project for those fat quarters.”

Once I started cutting them out, I couldn’;t stop! It was hard to find a background fabric that wouldn’;t distract from the Hawaiian prints, so I picked a charcoal marble by Moda. They seemed to go well together.

I just finished quilting it with QuiltMotion software and my BERNINA 820.?I wanted the quilt to fit either a queen or king bed, so I used 9 blocks across and 9 blocks down. I don’t think I’ll do that again. It was wider than the quilting area of the frame, so I had to turn it and do half at a time. I understand Grace is coming out with a 2 foot extension to the frame; that will help with large quilts. Mine was 107” square. Next time I’ll make 9 blocks across and 8 blocks down, so it will fit on the quilting frame and I won’t have to turn the quilt to do the borders.

I can’t wait to do other cutwork designs – I have so many ideas! Why didn’t I start this hobby years ago?

Here’s a note from Gyleen Fitzgerald, Colourful Stitches, quiltmaker, educator, author, and BERNINA National Artisan:

Emojis are great fun and this pocket pal project is an interesting way to introduce younger kids to the art of hand stitching.

A long winter it has been, some of us still two feet under winter's snow, patiently awaiting a glow, a thaw, a spring. The good news? Our spring collection has arrived, and it's filled to the brim with rich colors that reflect the first bloom of latter spring.
