Thank you Kumu Yuko for letting us have a sneak peek of your quilt to be displayed in the Yokohama 2015 Na Kupulau Poakalani Quilt Exhibit. So beautiful. Whales and Fishes. It’s going to be an amazing show. I can’t wait.
It has been a long, hot and humid summer. Counting down the days until we leave for Yokohama. I’m hoping it will be much cooler there than here in the islands. 92 degrees at 7PM but seeing friends and family in October will be a welcomed journey. To our friends in the Yamaguchi Prefecture here is your designated flower… the blossom of the Natsumikan. (Mandarin Blossom). John made this design using the quarter fold versus the an eighth fold.
Yes, we’re going to Yokohama, Japan on October 11 for an amazing quilt exhibit from October 14-19. 21 Certified Poakalani Hawaiian Quilt Instructors will be showcasing their quilts in this Hawaiian Quilt ONLY quilt exhibit. All the quilts are designed by John and of course some from Tutu Correa. We’re excited and to show our appreciating John has designed 47 – 45″ x 45″ Floral Hawaiian quilt designs for the 47 Japan prefectures.
To all of our friends in the Shimane Prefecture your designated flower the Mountain Peony.
I know I just hate it when I have to be the bearer of bad news. No class this week June 13 in honor of Kamehameha Day. We’ll see everyone back at class on June 20. In the meantime congratulations to another quilter who cut out her new 45″ x 45 ulu wall hanging. It’s going to be beautiful when it’s done.
I”m just calling this the happy quilt because when I look at it I can’t help but smile. Mie was able to use all the leftover scrap fabric from previous quilts. 45″ x 45″ Designed by John Serrao.
