"Golden Hawaiian Memories" by Carla Gentry

I made this quilt, Golden Hawaiian Memories for my mother to commemorate our family trip to Hawaii to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary.  The blocks are hand appliqued, the quilt is machine quilted.  I tried to use traditional looking Hawaiian quilt blocks and incorporated some of the wonderful family photos we took into the blocks.  One of the blocks has hearts and golden wedding rings for the anniversary.  As are all quilts, this was truly a labor of love.

Carla--

What a lovely way to combine Hawaiian style with a Baltimore album look.  Your quilt is quite unique and a beautiful tribute to your parents.

I love Hawaiian applique. I have never done it before, but it is on my list of things to learn.  And the way you incorporated photos makes it so special.  Great use of colors.

Carla,    

    Just as families are a blend of people, so quilts can blend patterns,and new with old.  You have woven your family into the pattern.  It was beautiful to start with, your family has made it glow!  My sister gave me a book of Hawaiian Patterns after she and her husband visited there. Someday I would love to make one also.

The photographs make the quilt a family heirloom to be treasured for years to come.  What a lovely idea!
