Croton and Ti Leaf

 

Note from Pat:  Here’s the latest…it’s called a “reverse” quilt because the pattern is actually cut from the top fabric, sort of like a silhouette, rather than the pattern being cut, then sewn on top of the fabric (sorry, I probably didn’t explain things too clearly, haha). At any rate, this is more difficult to do, as you have to sort of “think backwards” when you are cutting. All of the colored fabrics are actually under the tan fabric. I had the idea for the pattern from seeing a croton bush along my walking route. After trying to draw it for our artist John Serrao, I finally said…”can you design a pattern from this idea?”, and this is what he came up with…genius! I’ll post a picture of the actual croton bush so you can see the challenge he faced. It was his idea to add the green ti leaf design, and I think it was a good one. Many thanks, John!

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
