Les quilts hawaïens sont caractérisés par un motif central découpé dans une pièce de tissu uni qui a été pliée en 8, comme un patron de flocon de neige en papier. Le motif symétrique ainsi créé est cousu sur un fond blanc ou très contrasté, et entouré de motifs de quilting en écho.

Hawaiian quilts characteristically have a central design that is cut out of a piece of solid color cloth that has been folded into eighths, like a snowflake pattern quilt. The created radiating design is stitched onto a white or a strong contrasting background, with echo quilting around the cloth's edges.

Le quilting en écho, fait main ou machine, est un style de quilting où les lignes suivent les contours des motifs cousus, comme des ondulations ou un écho de la forme.

Echo quilting is a style of work, either carried out by hand or machine, in which the quilting lines are running along and parallel to the outline of the patterns, like the ripples or an echo of the shape.

La plupart des motifs de quilts Hawaïens incluent des fleurs vives, des papayes, l'arbre à pain, des feuilles de ti, des racines de taro. Mais ils peuvent aussi représenter l'amour pour la nature, des traditions, des légendes, ou des événements.

Most Hawaiian quilt designs include bright flowers, papayas, breadfruit, ti leaves, and taro roots, but can be anything that illustrates a love for nature, traditions, legends, or events.

  2. I had to go and read the 'rules'. I've made an applique quilt that used the snowflake technique but it only went as far as looking like a sort of cross. I do love the echo quilting style. Especially with these quilts.

  4. This alphabet "tour" through quilting tips is really fun! And wow - LOOK at that stingray quilt! I've made one Hawaiian mini as a gift for a friend, years ago. I really need to make one for myself.

  6. I love the Hawaiian quilts! I think the echo quilting around the central motif looks like giant waves splashing the shoreline of a Hawaiian island. :-)

  9. The more I quilt, the more I appreciate all kinds of quilts. Hawaiian quilts would not have resonated with me as a new quilter, but now I find them breathtaking.

  10. These designs look similar to applique work done in Gujarat in India - lots of florals and nature-based motifs. Lovely!
