The Fukui Prefecture where Dinosaurs once roamed but today wherethe Narcissus blooms throughout the region. For all our friends in Fukui. What a beautiful home you have.
or does Color Matter – Traditionally it was always a dark color on a white or light background. Then with availability of more colors and fabrics the colors of quilts became more bright and vibrant. Today we use printed fabrics and batiks. Whatever the color choices are it never changes the patterns/designs their stories and traditions.
You all look the same. Beautiful

It was an amazing show. 63 quilts in which 22 were new wall hangings and 1 large size quilt at their first showing. We are happy that the tradition of Hawaiian quilting will continue with these 22 quilting teachers in Japan. I hope to post more of these awesome quilts soon.

Another masterpiece using the Hawaiian Method of Reverse Applique. A secret because today is the first day we saw it. I’m loving this.
After several weeks of delay Kay was finally able to layout her full size quilt. Designed in honor of her mom Leilani. So do you like it plain or with the flowers blooming in their vibrant colors?
Another beautiful quilt by Pat… An amazing quilter and designer.
