Cherry Blossom Quilt by Certified Instructor Kimi Kumagai shows another type of Contemporary Hawaiian quilting technique called reverse applique.  While reverse applique is used in traditional Hawaiian quilting to accent flowers and leaves in this quilt it is only reverse applique that is shown.  The Beautiful Cherry Blossoms slowly falling under the evening sky.

Kimi is one of our favorite quilters. She has been able to convey the art of Hawaiian quilting through many different techniques and incorporate not only Hawaiian themes but themes and traditions from her homeland.  She learned to quilt from Poakalani and designing from John Serrao.  She is currently teaching in Nagoya, Japan.

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 June but haven't gotten any update for the month of July.  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
