So I spent the day doing the graphics on another of John’s 45″x 45″ pattern books. I love doing it. It’s like a puzzle that slowly reveals itself. I start by taking a picture of the 1/8 pattern and uploading it to my computer.  I then use a photo program to color in the pattern and then with another program slowly double the 1/8 design to a  quarter design, then the quarter becomes a half design and before you know it the half design is now a full design.  It’s amazing.  So today I thought I’d share one of the designs I worked on for John. When I first finished it I asked John, ” What were you thinking?”  All he said was, “Oh! that’s the old family Loi(Taro Patch) in Laie.” The whole family would come together to work and clean the Lo’i.  It was a family affair.  The Kalo or Taro plant therefore  came to symbolize family.  Yet, another story quilt of memories of old.    Hope you enjoy the design. 32 Taro Leaves….
