Finding Circles

So during one of John’s creative moments he designed 6 amazing circular patterns.  I believe they are some of his best designs and many others also agree but during this creative moment he randomly gave away the original designs(I think we have copies, no sure yet)  So it’s always a surprise when someone comes to the class and opens up the quilt they’re working on and finding one of the circular designs.  The Ipu(Gourd) quilt designed by John Serrao a work in progress by Pineapple Keiko.  Amazing colors.

Hokulea….

I’ve always wondered how many patterns John created  with the same theme.  The monsterra is always popular, the hibiscus, Heliconia and especially the pineapple but with the recent voyage of the Hokulea… it has now become one of popular designs to quilt.  Tomiko’s (on the left) Hokulea wall hanging. Loving those dolphins in the waves. Using not only the technique of needle turn applique but also reverse applique. Can’t wait to see it completed.

Building Renovation Kanaina Building – Update May, 2017

February 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
