Something different to quilt - Hawaiian style

I got this fabulous project last month.   It was made up of Hawaiian style appliqué cushion covers (taken apart and sewn back together again)




           

My quilter was not fussy about the style of quilting.   We decided on a basic meander, and I went over everything, including the appliqué because the fabric was worn in some places and the appliqué was fragile in other places.
 I first received the quilt top in its 'flimsy' state, I was a little unsure about the project.                   
And then,  as I started quilting away, and the loft of the batting started showing the dimension of the quilting.
                                                                 

I fell in love                                                               

And didn't want to give it back. 
 It is such a happy happy quilt.   The colours just sing together!   
And I'm so glad I got to work on it!
