John doesn’t design birds because every time he designs a Hawaiian quilt with birds the quilter, John likes to say, flies or moves back to the mainland. So no birds and no leaving but he designs orchids even dove orchids breaking that kapu. Congratulations Ikumi for a beautiful quilt. I hope you quilt with us for a very long time.

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.
