Here it is! A new quilt pattern with options to use either blossom or honu appliques. Below are a few more pictures and a link to the pattern if you'd like to try it. The appliques and stitching in the borders make this quilt. Applique instructions are for fusible but whatever method works for you is best. I prefer the interfacing method or sometimes needle turn. My February 2022 post shows how to make appliques using the interfacing method.
This quilt is fun made with the Hawaiian fabrics (Kapaia Stitchery) shown but also fun in almost any others. I recently made the blossom version with Tilda fabrics and Big Stitch quilting. Sweet!
Fussy cut the turtle backs, heads and legs for extra cuteness!
Use perle cotton or embroidery thread to add detail to blossom centers.
I use a Hera tool and a wave ruler to mark wavy lines for embroidery.
Quilt material requirements call for yardage and fat quarters. It can also be made using a charm pack for the half square triangles. However, you would need to adjust size of setting and corner triangles. You will end up with a smaller quilt.
