Hibiscus Hawaiian Quilt by Tomiko Okada

 

John has two grandchildren both girls. The oldest mo’opuna(grandchild) was given John’s favorite Hawaiian name Pomaika’i which means blessed but all the quilters call her Missy, her bestowed upon nickname from her grandmother Poakalani.   This quilt was designed by John for Missy…Hearts for a special girl from a very over protective grandfather.  Quilted by Aunty Tomiko Okada 90″ x 90″

John said this was one of the easiest quilts he designed.  All he thought of was his quiet and smart granddaughter and her compassion  for helping others, hence the hearts. The color blue was chosen for the design because of course it’s Missy’s favorite color but by also choosing a solid dark color and a white/off white background the design becomes the focal point. Like we say in the quilting world the design pops from it’s canvas showcasing the amazing design.

Aloha Everyone, We were all  aware that the Kanaina Building was scheduled for renovations a year ago.  We are 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 there through the month of March but haven't gotten any update for the month of April.  We have found a temporary home when the renovations begin and will let you know when the time gets closer.. Thank you for your patience.   Cissy
