- Review of Hawaiian Applique — Review by Anonymous
I really liked this book, but the idea of tackling a large Hawaiian quilt was beyond my skill level. I did use the patterns, though. I used them in smaller format in a 4-block quilt. It worked very nicely--but definitely was not traditional Hawaiian quilting. I was thinking of using the patterns for some home decor projects I have in mind. But thank you Ms. Fleming for the patterns.
