Another amazing quilt by Pat. The beauitful Rose quilt design by John using a variegated fabric.
Yep, I just can’t help myself. I had this on my FACEBOOK page but I just had to share it again. Pat’s amazing money tree quilt. A John design of course and I sincerely believe one of his best and we can’t forget Pat’s awesome quilting. She did this quilt in record time too. Oh and the design, in Hawaii we call this the Money Tree but it’s not really a Money tree. It was given that name when it was first planted outside of Bishop Bank in downtown Hilo back in the 1920’s.
Our Toshie is quite small in stature BUT she loves making those large King and Queen size quilts. This quilt depicts the many hula implements dancers use when dancing the hula. An amazing personal design by John Serrao for our amazing Certified instructor Toshie.
Some quilts just make you happy. This quilt designed by John is actually for a twin size bed but Takako’s going to make a queen size quilt with the pattern. It’s going to be beautiful when complete.
The Pali Lookout gives you an amazing view of the Koolau Mountains on the Windward Side. Below these mountains Hoomaluhia Gardens with its variety of floral beauties of the Monsterra, Heleconia, Torch Ginger and Hibiscus is a great place to find calming peace. 90″x 90″ – Queen/Full Size Designed by John Serrao
Featuring the many designs of John Serrao.
It was an amazing show. 63 quilts in which 22 were new wall hangings and 1 large size quilt at their first showing. We are happy that the tradition of Hawaiian quilting will continue with these 22 quilting teachers in Japan. I hope to post more of these awesome quilts soon.
Designed and Quilted by Pat,
Another masterpiece using the Hawaiian Method of Reverse Applique. A secret because today is the first day we saw it. I’m loving this.
After several weeks of delay Kay was finally able to layout her full size quilt. Designed in honor of her mom Leilani. So do you like it plain or with the flowers blooming in their vibrant colors?
Linda’s next project. The Breadfruit-Ulu design. Hopefully it will live up to its tradition of bringing prosperity to one’s home. Design by John Serrao
Lorraine’s and Tomiko’s Tulip quilts waiting to be appliqued and quilted. Designed by John Serrao
While some of us were taking the holiday weekend off Pat was still quilting away. Another amazing quilt by Pat. The breadfruit/ulu design. Legend says that anyone who finishes a ulu quilt they will not want for anything in life. Congratulations Pat.
Susie Sugi a dear friend and a strong supporter of everything Hawaiian especially Hawaiian quilting stopped by the Hawaiian quilting class while visiting from Japan. She lived in Hawaii for 12 years before returning to Japan and during those twelve years she established her self as not only a quilter but also a Master Hawaiian Quilter and Instructor. Her return to Japan has left a small void in our classes and in the Hawaiian quilting world. We miss her and always happy when she’s in the islands. Pictured is her next quilting project. One of My Tutu’s vintage quilts. Kanani O Amelika – The Beauty of America. Can you find the Eagles and Daisies depicted in the quilt.
I added two new quilts to Pat’s Gallery of Quilts. If you’re interested in one of her quilts call her at (214)293-9303 or e-mail at email@example.com. All the quilts are hand stitched and Made In Hawaii. Her quilts are always beautiful to look at. Other quilts by Pat http://poakalani.net/quilts-pat/
