Review

Vicky Fleming s Hawaiian Appliqué provides original patterns based on appliqués and cut-work designs -- all Polynesian-inspired, all providing easy projects based on patterns. Fans of Hawaiian style will find this filled with appliqué ideas. A highly recommended pick. -Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch Newsletter, April 2004

About the Author

Vicky Fleming's orientation to the tropics began at an early age. When she was in third or fourth grade in Michigan, her teacher asked if east was to the left or right. Vicky answered, "Left." The teacher wouldn't budge on insisting that Vicky had given the wrong answer. The teacher hadn't specified "on the map," however, and in Vicky's mind, she was standing in Michigan looking toward Florida, so east was indeed on the left.

Format: Paperback
This book has everything you need to know to make your first Hawaiian quilt - history, Hawaiian terminology, techniques from start to finish, and gorgeous patterns to choose from. Hawaiian quilts are a unique quilting tradition; appliques based on island nature, cut using a snowflake folding method and generally quilted with radiating "echo" lines. Books on this technique are few and far between, and this one is excellent. Aloha and happy quilting!

This book is well written. Vicky Fleming tells us about the history of Hawaiian quilting. The rules, Hawaiian words and phrases, colors and symbols of Hawaiian quilting. She tells us how to plan a quilt and how to applique and how to quilt it. There are many patterns to choose from. I'd like to make them all. I highly recommend this book.
