cupidThe Cupid Quilt,  designed and quilted by Sophie Ventura. As you can see there is no symmetrical design, just cupid and hearts placed on a background fabric  and than  sewn and quilted  by machine.  Aunty Sophie made this quilt in one day as a gift for her husband.  Yes, she made it the day before Valentines day and finished it, but it’s an amazing quilt capturing  an expression  of love for her husband.

 

This quilt was part of our Family Quilt Show held at  the Mission Housed Museum almost twenty years ago. Those two little girls in the photo are my nieces who are all grown up.

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.

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 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
