This quilt was made by Sherry Thompson from Spokane, Washington. This Hawaiian quilt is 82" X 82", completed in 2014, it is hand appliqued. I hand quilted it using King Tut multi color thread, the design was reproduced on graph paper from pictures of Hawaiian quilts on the Hawaiian Quilt Research project website. Quilts on the site were from 1930-1950 maybe...
I have since learned that there used to be a pattern for this quilt circulated among quilters in Hawaii in the early 1980's and a copy of the pattern was in a quilt museum there at that time.
These quilt photos were sent in by Carolyn Burgess from Applique, Quilts, and More. You can see more on her website at www.appliquesquiltsandmore.com
The first quilt, is my very first quilt ever made, is my version of a Baltimore quilt I saw at a quilt shop. I started the quilt with an Accucut Grandemark cutter, but later, when I discovered 'laser' cutting, was able to create different size appliques from the original dies I had... for instance, the tree in the gingerbread house block was originally cut with a 5" die.... after I bought the laser machine, I was able to blow it up to 17" to use as the center block. The second quilt is the 2nd largest quilt I've made,, because I can cut extremely intricate designs with the laser, I was able to create various Native American Indian Symbols.
