Quilted Wall Hangings 22″ x 22″

 

Did you know that prior to the 1970’s if you wanted to learn Hawaiian Quilting your first pattern would probably have been a full size quilt.  It was not until 1972 that John & Poakalani Serrao became one of the first quilt designers to offer the smaller 22″ x 22″ quilt designs for beginners.  It was less overwhelming than the larger quilts and it was the beginning of using the small cushions as artistic wallhangings instead of sofa decorations. Enjoy some of the quilting squares mostly quilted by Poakalani and some from her students. Many of the pictures listed below were taken BDC (Before Ditigal Camera’s) so the pictures are not as vibrant in color but still great to look at.  Enjoy!

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
