This queen size quilt features Honu, the turtle of Hawaiian folklore.
The flowers and turtle are machined appliqued on hand dyed fabric representing the spinnaker of SV Honu, whose owners commissioned this quilt.
The block known as the vanishing-nine-patch surrounds the spinnaker representing the land, sea and sky of the Hawaiian islands. Beautiful, bright, intensely colorful hand-dyes and batiks were used through out this quilt.
Free motion machine quilting of waves, small sail boats, exotic flowers and dolphins further enhance this queen size beauty.
