Vintage Kukui Nut Design. Quilted by Tomoko Kato. I love the colors on this quilt as well as the symmetrical circular design.

Vintage Carnation Design, Quilted by Kimi Kumagai – One of my favorite designs after I saw it completed. I love how the vases were quilted.

Tutu Caroline Correia, Poakalani’s Grandmother was also an avid Hawaiian quilter.  Born in 1886 she moved from Ka’u on Hawaii Island  to Honolulu when she was only 12. Soon after married at a very young age started her family  and began her quilting passion.  Poakalani often spoke of her home being full with women quilting and sharing stories.  Two quilt designs in this past Yokohama exhibit was from Tutu Correia’s pattern collection.  Enjoy the old styling of the Traditional Hawaiian designs.  Thank you to Kimi and Tomoko for quilting  patterns from her collection.  Beautiful designs, beautiful quilts… Made by Beautiful Ladies

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.

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
