Most Hawaiian Quilts have center Medallions but every once in while some quilts are designed with only a lei/border missing that center piece.  Still Beautiful, just a different style.  Enjoy Kimi’s amazing Kalo quilt. The Kalo is our Taro plant which we make Poi. Yokohama Quilt Exhibit 2015.  Designed by John Serrao. Personal Design, Private Collection

Aloha….  I know it’s been awhile since I wrote on my actual website instead of my Facebook but I have some really amazing patterns to post and share with all of you.  We’ve been busy as you can tell by our Facebook but not to busy to introduce new designs in the coming months. Amazing John has made new designs for each State in the Union but instead of the 22″ x 22″ size these are the 45″ x 45″. Great for Wall hangings.  I’ll also be sharing with you some larger quilt designs.

 

Alabama was settled in 1702 and officially became a state on Dec. 14, 1819.The Camellia is the state’s designated flower.

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. 

Building Renovation Kanaina Building – Update May, 2017

February 19, 2017February 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
