pat's hawaiian hibiscus quilt finished 2011

Pat is amazing. i posted on her a while back when this fabric  was still in pieces. she painted these flowers and fabrics several years ago in a quilt hawaii class i lead and last winter they began to talk to her, to tease her into putting them together and quilting . some of the sections are drawn and painted, some painted, and some are the wipe up cloths i ask folks to put in their non paint brush hand. after a session, left to dry on their own some become random works of art. she used these too and the resulting quilt is beautiful. she used threads that sparkled when the light hit them just so by Superior and the bobbin threads told their own story on the back along with her fabric choices and free motion quilting.  i am in love with this quilt and had the privilege to  keep it in my booth for a while to share with other quilters
 and the folks that say..." what do you do with this fabric? " 
 thank you Pat for sharing and making the world more colorful and alive!
