Paper PatternAfter designing your pattern sometimes it’s a good idea to cut it out on paper first before cutting it out on fabric. That way you can see the full design, double check the size, and also make any changes.

When John first started designing he used masking tape to join newsprint  paper to the size of the actual quilt.  45″ x 45″, 90″x 90″ even 108″ x 108″. He would then fold the large paper to it’s 1/8 fold and  design the pattern.  When that step was completed he  had the ladies cut out the whole 1/8 paper pattern and then  finding any open floor space opened the pattern to it’s full design(this was a great practice time to show the quilters how to lay out the quilt).  At this time he and the ladies were able to see the pattern opened to its full design.  We got our newsprint paper from Hawaii Hochi and purchased their end rolls.  Today we use less paper and mirrors.

February 19, 2017February 19, 2017
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 June but haven't gotten any update for the month of July.  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
