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.

Poakalani Hawaiian Quilting Classes Canceled Until Further Notice

January 20, 2020
For the safety and health of our quilting family the Poakalani Hawaiian Quilting Classes have been canceled until further notice.  It was an easy decision for both of us because we want all of you healthy when we return when all of this is over.  If any of you need anything and I mean anything please give us a call 223-1108.  In the meantime please also stay safe, wash your hands, don't touch your face and pray this will be over soon.  All of you are in our daily prayers.      Tuffy & Cissy
