Guava Patch is the name of this new hawaiian quilt. Guava for the color of the backing fabric. Patch for the patchwork front. Yes this is a picture of the back. I had it for about 10 years and have been putting off using it. Since this is going to be a wedding present for newlywed friends of ours, I thought this was the perfect backing fabric. If you look at older posts, at first, I was going to use Greek Sakura fabric. I think this came out much better.
Now for a picture of the front of the quilt.
This came out to 85 x 85. It is on the floor and I am standing on the chair to take this picture. Its being wrapped up tonight for the wedding tomorrow. I'm glad I remembered to take a picture. The quilting was freehand machine embroidery following the pineapple and monasteria leaf on the back fabric. I used coral thread on the back and white thread for the front.
