Adapting to change is never easy.  Traditionally all Hawaiian quilts were made for beds. In the early 1900’s if you were going to learn to make a Hawaiian quilt you actually started with a larger bed size quilt. (Hence the many unfinished closet quilts)It was only during the 1970’s when a few quilt designers(including John) finally adapted and created quilt patterns for the smaller cushions and wall hangings.  Today with many changes to home decors  many people are now completing their homes and bedrooms with bed runners which has now become  another standard size of patterns for the commercial market.  Congratulations Pat  🙂 for the amazing Bed Runner for one of your commissioned clients.  So Beautiful.   Anyone wanting a commissioned quilt or hoping to finally complete a closet quilt contact Pat for some really amazing quotes.  http://poakalani.net/quilts-pat/

It was  a nice surprise to see Ikumi at class on Saturday.  She was homesick for Hawaii and we’ve been missing our Ikumi.  She shared her next quilt of Whales swimming in the ocean below the Makapuu Lighthouse. Her design and it’s beautiful.  Great Job Ikumi. Glad you came home for a short visit.

Thank you Hiromi for making a special trip to our class so we can admire your completed queen size quilt the “Cup Of Gold”. So beautiful and the colors reminds me of those days in the 60’s and 70’s when the Hawaiian quilt colors were bold and strong.
