Cherry Blossom Quilt by Certified Instructor Kimi Kumagai shows another type of Contemporary Hawaiian quilting technique called reverse applique.  While reverse applique is used in traditional Hawaiian quilting to accent flowers and leaves in this quilt it is only reverse applique that is shown.  The Beautiful Cherry Blossoms slowly falling under the evening sky. Designed and Quilted by Kimi Kumagai. 90″x 90″

 

Kimi is one of our favorite quilters. She has been able to convey the art of Hawaiian quilting through many different techniques and incorporate not only Hawaiian themes but themes and traditions from her homeland.  She learned to quilt from Poakalani and designing from John Serrao.  She is currently teaching in Nagoya, Japan.

No Class June 9 – Kamehameha Day Parade

May 24, 2018May 24, 2018
Please mark your calendars and we'll see everyone back at class on June 16.  Just a side note.  When anyone asked where our quilting classes are held my mother Poakalani would tell them, "Look for the Kamehameha Statue... his out stretched arm points to the building we quilt at across the street."  It's true and oh so funny.

Aloha Everyone, We were all  aware that the Kanaina Building was scheduled for renovations a year ago.  We are now getting closer to the renovation date so we will be on a week to week notice for the quilting classes.  Please keep checking weekly for an updated status.  We will be at the Iolani Palace  through the month of December but haven't gotten any update for the month of January or February.  We have found a temporary home at the Bishop Museum when the renovations begin and will let you know when the time gets closer.. Thank you for your patience.   Cissy
